Few historic individuals excite such conflicting visions as Napoleon. Some extoll him as a genius and others denounce him as megalomaniac monster. Yet his personality is crucial to understanding the turbulent years that shaped the world at the start of the nineteenth century.
Alexander Mikaberidze is Professor of History and Ruth Herring Noel Endowed Chair at Louisiana State University in Shreveport. He specializes in the Napoleonic period and has written and edited some two dozen titles, including the critically acclaimed The Napoleonic Wars: A Global History (Oxford University Press, 2020) and The Cambridge History of the Napoleonic Wars (Cambridge University Press, 2023).
