There is no shortage of characterizations of Napoleon, but not since Peter Geyl's classic Napoleon: For and Against in the 1940s has a writer tried to assess his many reputations and how they have evolved, and continue to evolve.

Texte du rabat

Drawing on the latest scholarship, this study assesses the many reputations of Napoleon and how they have evolved, particularly how our historic view of Napoleon has been altered by such events as the World Wars and the Cold War, and by association with such figures as Hitler, Santa Anna, Mehemet Ali, and Mussolini. The author treats its subject as a universal figure on the world stage, rather than a specifically French one.



Contenu

Reputation construction; the war of image commences - Napoleon and the liberals; romanticism; popular Bonapartism; Napoleon and the triumphant republic; Napoleon and the right; determinism, structuralism and the great man; the great man and the "weaker sex"; the modern Charlemagne and European integration.
