    1. This is essentially an anthology of essays by leading scholars on various aspects of the Napoleonic period. I was looking for a book that would both refresh my memory and help fill in some gaps I had. I wasn't looking for an in-depth exploration, but enough understanding to make some of the other fictional books set in this period make more sense. In that respect, this book was a complete success. It's a great introduction to the essential features of the Napoleonic regime. If you're looking for [...]

    2. I was curious how Napoleon came into power. But I wasn't interested in reading about battles and winning and losing and cavalry and artillery and all that kind of thing. This book fit the bill fairly well. The author was interested in how Napoleon was shaped to become the person he became and he was also interested in how Napoleon shaped France and influenced other countries. I didn't finish it because I got my answer and I didn't want to know the details of how he impacted Europe.

    3. Collection of essays on Napoleon, diferrent topics from different perspectives. generally thought-provoking.
