About this book

The Napoleonic Empire played a crucial role in reshaping global landscapes and in realigning international power structures on a worldwide scale. When Napoleon died, the map of many areas had completely changed, making room for Russia's ascendency and Britain's rise to world power.

Reviews

"Divided into four geographic sections inclusive of Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, South America and the Ottoman Empire, this volume opens and closes with two outstanding scholars who provide provocative presentations of Napoleon's European Empire, and each chapter inbetween offers interesting and important contributions to the multifaceted reach of the Napoleonic experiment. A brilliant collection on this rich era of transformation." - Katherine Aaslestad, West Virginia University, USA

"This excellent and original collection of twenty two essays by leading Napoleonic scholars analyses the global impact of the Napoleonic Empire. The articles very competently address the historiography and profound transformations and legacy the Napoleonic era launched throughout Europe, the Atlantic World, and the Middle East." Alexander Grab, University of Maine, USA
