A Distinguıshed and Loyal Ottoman Civil Servant: Hüseyin Nâzım Pasha
The nineteenth century represented an important period in the attempts of Ottoman Turkey to bring all its institutions, civil and military, up to date so as to be able to prevent disintegration of the empire. The Ottoman civil service bureaucracy became an efficient part of this modernizing process. Hüseyin Nâzım Pasha, who served both as minister and governor of major provinces, provides an important example of Young Ottoman thought, loyal but forward-looking, steeped in tradition but not blindly bound by it, industrious and well able to represent the changing face of Turkey in both the private and the public spheres. His life represents the zeitgeist of the times with great accuracy.
