The sultans by Noel Barber( Book )

8 editions published between 1973 and 1975 in 3 languages and held by 1,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The subject of this vast, astonishing and brilliantly readable work of history is the bizarre story of the Ottoman Empire, seen through the lives and actions of its sultans, with their absolute power and terrifying cruelty, their love of pomp and magnificence and their overwhelming venality and corruption. The author describes the men, the events, the daily life, the strange customs of Turkey's court, from her emergence as a great power in the sixteenth century to the death of Kemal Ataturk, who overthrew the Sultanate to establish a new and more modern form of tyranny. This book is a unique and fascinating record of four centuries of glory, debauchery, splendor and cruelty. --from inside jacket flap

From the land of lost content; the Dalai Lama's fight for Tibet by Noel Barber( Book )

"Nearly everyone knows the dramatic story of the Dalai Lama, who in 1959 was forced to flee Tibet and the people whom he ruled. Not as many know the stirring and terrible events behind that escape--events which culminated in a spontaneous uprising of the Tibetan people in the capital city of Lhasa. This book, based on interviews with many of the participants (including the Dalai Lama himself), and containing a wealth of unpublished material, carefully reconstructs both the revolt and the Dalai Lama's journey."--Book jacket
