Following the defeat of the Ottoman Empire, the harsh terms of the treaty of Sèvres were imposed by the victorious powers in 1920. However, the nationalist struggle allowed the nascent Turkish Republic to renegotiate a more favourable settlement at the Lausanne conference in 1923. Sevtap Demirci’s Strategies and Struggles explores the emergence of Britain as a new Middle East power and how it dealt with the changing military and diplomatic situation in Anatolia. Demirci’s work is the first exhaustive attempt to study the evolving diplomatic strategies of Turkey and Britain before and during the Lausanne Conference. Demirci, making extensive use of the both Turkish and British primary sources, gives a chronological account of the conference as it occurred behind closed doors. Strategies and Struggles is, therefore, an important contribution to understanding both Britain’s interwar experience in the Middle East as well as the formative diplomatic efforts of the Turkish Republic.

Angels Hastening

The Karbalāʾ Dreams
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4209-1
When, on an autumn Medina night in 61/680, the night that saw al-Ḥusayn killed, Umm Salama was torn from her sleep by an apparition of a long-dead Muḥammad, she slipped effortlessly into a progression of her co-religionists who, irrespective of status, gender or standing with God, were the recipients of dark and arresting visions. At the core of those Delphian dreams, peopled by angels or ğinn or esteemed forbears and textured with Iraqi dust and martyrs’ blood, was the Karbalāʾ event. Her dream would be recounted by an array of Muslim scholars, from al-Tirmiḏī, stellar pupil of al-Buḫārī, and Ibn ʿAsākir, untiring chronicler of Syrian history, to bibliophile theologian Ibn Ṭāʾūs and Egyptian polymath al-Suyūṭī. But this was not Umm Salama’s only otherworldly encounter and she was not the only one to have al-Ḥusayn’s fate disturb her nights. This is their story.
