Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about political elites who were able to influence political decision-making throughout the District of Jerusalem. They were commonly divided into two kinds: central and local elites. The chapter attempts to take a more analytical look at those local elites that were of district-wide importance and thus constituted the principal partners and competitors of the Ottoman administrators. It describes other distinctions within the Palestinian elites. The chapter provides a historical outline of the development of Palestinian urban elites during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It then deals with the strategies and experiences of elite families during the Hamidian period.

Keywords: central elites; Hamidian period; Jerusalem; local elites
