Description from the publisher:

During the nineteenth century, Ottoman rulers adopted measures that displaced religious personnel and religious principles from their customary roles in administrative, legal, and educational institutions. These secularizing methods, when finally enforced in the provinces in the second half of the century, transformed the notable social stratum in Arab cities. In this ambitious and important study, Commins explores how men in turn-of-the-century Damascus dealt, in word and deed, with the dilemmas of identity that arose from the Ottoman Empire's nineteeth century reforms.
