This chapter traces the unfolding story of power in the Ottoman tribal zone for the years 1908 to 1914 by outlining the aims of the central regime, using the Hamidiye as a lens through which to view the issues at hand, and also treats the question of power as it unfolded on the ground quite beyond the reach of the government. Modern means of communication and organization begun during the Hamidian period flourished after 1908, and political parties, clubs, and platforms turned into new venues to bargain for authority among diverse groups and individuals in the Kurdish regions, including the Hamidiye chiefs.

Keywords:   Ottoman tribal zone, Hamidiye, Kurdish regions
