Peirce Î 7 free read E context of household networks Leslie Peirce demonstrates that female power was a logical indeed an intended conseuence of political structures Royal women were custodians of sovereign power training their sons in its use and exercising it directly as regents when necessary Further they played central roles in the public culture of soverei. I became interested in learning about the Ottoman Empire the Sultans and the institution of the Imperial Harem after watching The Magnificent Century The series revolves around the reign of Sultan S leyman the Magnificent his relationship with his favoured Haseki H rrem Sultan and the triumphs and disasters of the Ottoman Empire during the era of the 16th century Needless to say I was intrigued and decided to peruse the history section of my university library in search of books on the Ottoman Empire and specifically on the harem Despite being a history student I have never studied the Ottoman Empire in detail as my focus up till now has been on Europe America and the modern world So I went into this book with very little background information on the Ottomans or their modes of government and authority I wouldn t recommend this as the Imperial Harem although incredibly detailed is highly academic and reuires some previous knowledge in order to fully grasp its key themes Nonetheless I can safely say that I enjoyed this book despite my being woefully under prepared for it The Imperial Harem is rigorously researched insightful and brimming with historical detail and analysis The main arguments of the book are that the royal women of the Harem played critical and influential roles within the politics and government of the Ottoman Empire that the Sultan relied heavily on his female relatives and concubines for alliances advice and for the production of royal heirs and that the nature of Ottoman sovereignty changed dramatically throughout the history of the Empire To say that this is a heavy going book is an understatement It is clearly meant for an academic audience and the author often delves into intense analysis which may leave the general reader a little lost Informative and dense this book reuires patience and a willingness to understand the various theories being proposed However it is still a fascinating and well written read for those prepared The Imperial Harem is focused into two componentsSection 1 The Politics of Reproduction This sections provide a broad overview of the Ottoman Empire from the reign of Osman I 1281 1324 to the reign of the child Sultan Mehmed IV 1648 1687 and details how and why the Sultans preferred serial concubinage in the production of royal heirs then to them marrying into other royal houses The influence and prestige of the various Hasekis and Valide Sultan in the post S leymanic period is noted and deftly explained from the reign of H rrem Sultan favoured concubine then wife to S leyman to the Turhan Sultan Haseki to Ibrahim I and mother to Mehemed IV This is a brilliantly researched and thoughtful piece relentless in destroying the damaging Western obsession with the harem as a place of sexual intrigue and lust Pierce puts the Harem in context and explains it workings as an institution and why it was the locus for power in the Ottoman world In the intro she smoothly sorts out the myths of the Harem and places the institution into its proper standing in historiography Section 2Women and Sovereign PowerThis section concerns the authority and political aptitude wielded by influential members of the harem particularly the Valide Sultan and the Grand Vizier Pierce discusses the transformative images of Ottoman Sovereignty as the Empire ceased to expand and instead focused its energy and resources on maintaining its vast territories The various public charities good deeds public processions the building of grand mosues and tombs were celebrated displays of royal power and privilege meant to broadcast who was in charge and to bolster popular support Pierce argues that the diplomacy carried out by the Valide Sultans and the Sultans favoured concubines ensured successful international relations How the women exercised such broad power and how society viewed it is another key component of the Pierce s thesis This section leans to the theoretical than the previous one and is good deal analytical and thoughtful It is highly interesting and will uestion the readers attitude towards the harem All in all this was an excellent well rounded and academically brilliant book into the real historical value and influence of the royal Harem Might be a much for the general reader to follow

Peirce Î 7 free read Gnty royal ceremonial monumental building and patronage of artistic production The Imperial Harem argues that the exercise of political power was tied to definitions of sexuality Within the dynasty the hierarchy of female power like the hierarchy of male power reflected the broader society's control for social control of the sexually active. I recommend this for anyone who wants to know about arguably the most tumultuous era for the Ottoman dynasty s harem through a sociopolitical lens that takes into account axes other than simply gender Caveat Not for strictly chronological historical account This book is about how certain governmental bodies and traditions evolved according to the demands and circumstances of their time not about giving a year by year guide for people who are unfamiliar with Ottoman history You can still read it without knowing much about Ottoman history but it would be very challenging to follow
