Creating a French Empire and establishing French dominance over Europe constituted Napoleon's most important and consistent aims. In this fascinating book, Alexander Grab explores Napoleon's European policies, as well as the response of the European people to his rule, and demonstrates that Napoleon was as much a part of European history as he was a part of French history.

Napoleon and the Transformation of Europe:
- examines the formation of Napoleon's Empire, the Emporer's impact throughout Europe, and how the Continent responded to his policies
- focuses on the principal developments and events in the ten states that comprised Napoleon's Grand Empire: France itself, Belgium, Germany, the Illyrian Provinces, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland
- analyses Napoleon's exploitation of occupied Europe
- discusses the broad reform policies Napoleon launched in Europe, assesses their success, and argues that the French leader was a major reformer and a catalyst of modernity on a European scale

MEDIA 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's Napoleon and the Transformation of Europe is both solidly researcehd and very readable. It is also the most complete short history of the Napoleonic Empire in print. No part is neglected, from France and the annexed departments through the satellite kingdoms and lesser states and provinces.' - Owen Connelly, University of South Carolina. 'Alex 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, Unievrsity of Aberdeen, UK Napoleon and the Transformation of Europe will certainly find a niche on the reading lists of graduate and perhaps undergraduate courses covering the French Revolution and Empire. It adds a new level of understanding about the profound changes wrought by Napoleon's armies as they traversed the length and breadth of Europe. - Jim McIntyre, H-NET '...offers an accessible and up-to-date synthesis' - Malcolm Crook, H-Net
