Chapter Summary

The return of the Ottoman constitution in 1908 was immediately perceived as a revolution (inqilāb), and was widely commented in the Arabic press?not only in newspapers but also in cultural and educational reviews such as al-Hilāl (The Crescent) and al-Manār (The Lighthouse), both edited in Cairo by Syrian Ottoman subjects, Jurji Zaydan (1861?1914) and Muhammad Rashid Rida (1865?1935). The Ottoman revolution was a turning point in the history of the reformist movement. The ideas of reform and progress and the related concept of liberty spread considerably and were widely discussed, assuming a more political color. At the same time, just because its supporters were getting involved in politics, the movement started to diversify. Different concepts of reform and liberty appeared.
