Editorial Reviews


"Excellent, up-to-date clear introduction. Broad in perspective and in many ways surpasses existing literature."--Dr Lucy Riall, Birbeck College, University of London

"Alexander Grab has written a survey that will rapidly become the best starting point for students of the period. It combines the rare qualities of succinctness and depth of thought that will both inform and inspire undergraduates for many years to come. A much needed addition to the literaure of an historical topic at last coming into its own."--Professor Michael Broers, University of Aberdeen

Alexander Grab has crafted a marvelous analysis of Europe during the Napoleonic period. This is a well-written and enlightening volume that details the application and effect of French (particularly Napoleonic) hegemony throughout much of the continent between 1792 and 1815. It provides a perfect balance of detail and brevity. It is "low-density" in its presentation, making it easy to read and comprehend. And yet it manages to paint a comprehensive picture and accomplishes its stated aims remarkably well.

Grab begins his work with an excellent introduction that outlines recent scholarship on the Napoleonic period. He emphasizes that his own work is meant as a synthesis of secondary literature intended to provide an overview of Napoleonic rule in a European context. The organization of the chapters is excellent and lends itself to easy comprehension. It begins with a chapter that provides a chronological narrative of the French Revolutionary era (beginning in 1792) and on through the rise of the French Empire (under Napoleon) to its height in 1810-1812. The second chapter provides an overview of Napoleonic rule in Europe, emphasizing the common threads and themes observed throughout the empire. Ten subsequent chapters function as the core of the book, with each chapter dedicated to a different country that--at one time or another during the period--was incorporated into the French Empire (France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany (as it existed during the era), Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, the Grand Duchy of Warsaw (Poland), and Illyria). These chapters examine in detail the application of French rule, its effect on the country and its development, and the legacy of Napoleonic dominance.
