A reappraisal of Napoleon the man. Roger Williams' biographical study shows how medical evidence can be used as historical data to refine our view of the past. For an accurate picture, he examines the medical evidence of the case, the emperor's psychological make-up, and the external pressures on him: the Crimean and Franco-Prussian wars, government reforms, the competence of his advisers, the political finagling of the empress, the assumptions and reactions of foreign governments.

Originally published in 1972.
