Chapter Summary

This index is a list of names, terms ,concepts and cities that occur in this book titled British diplomacy in Turkey, 1583 to the present : a study in the evolution of the resident embassy . The manipulation of Turkish policy to suit England's interests in the balance of power, or territory in Germany, did not always involve encouraging the sultan to attack the Habsburgs. Indeed, with the slow eclipse of Spain in the seventeenth century and the new need for Austria to give its undivided attention to helping Europe's opposition to the rising power of France, the opposite policy was dictated. And once Russia started to threaten the complete destruction of the Ottoman Empire in the late eighteenth century and thus upset the equilibrium of Europe as a whole, the simple survival of that empire- 'the sick man of Europe'- became a fixed point of British policy.
