Synopsis

Napoleon Bonaparte dominated the public life of Europe like no other individual before him. Not surprisingly, the story of the man himself has usually swamped the stories of his subjects. This book looks at the history of the Napoleonic Empire from an entirely new perspective- that of the ruled rather than the ruler. Michael Broers concentrates on the experience of the people of Europe- particularly the vast majority of Napoleon's subjects who were neither French, nor willing participants in the great events of the period- during the dynamic but short-lived career of Napoleon, when half the European continent fell under his rule. In a new edition of a highly acclaimed book, Broers weaves together a myriad of regional experiences to produce a social history of the Napoleonic Empire with a truly panoramic scope.

Michael Broers is Professor of Western European History at Oxford University. He is the author of many books on revolutionary and Napoleonic Europe including The Napoleonic Empire in Italy, 1796 -1814, winner of the Grand Prix Napoleon Prize 2006 and Napoleon's Other War: Bandits, Rebels and their Pursuers in the Age of Revolutions. He is currently writing a two-volume biography of Napoleon, the first volume of which, Napoleon: Soldier of Destiny, was published in 2014.
