Abdul Hamid II was the Ottoman Empire's 34th Sultan during a period of decline including the massacre of Armenians (Wiki). "Miss Haslip has fully explored the devious intrigues of the period and the wily policies of Abdul Hamid, but she is as much concerned with the man as with the power he wielded and the means by which he secured his country's safety until his dependence on Germany brought destruction in the First World War" (dust jacket).
