But the journey that led him there was neither inevitable nor smooth.and#160; This authoritative biography focuses on the evolution of Napoleon as a leader and debunks many of the myths that are often repeated about himand#151;sensational myths often propagated by Napoleon himself. Here, Philip Dwyer sheds new light on Napoleonand#8217;s inner lifeand#151;especially his darker side and his passionsand#151;to reveal a ruthless, manipulative, driven man whose character has been disguised by the public image he carefully fashioned to suit the purposes of his ambition.

One of the first truly modern politicians, Napoleon was a master of and#147;spin,and#8221; using the media to project an idealized image of himself. Dwyerand#8217;s biography of the young Napoleon provides a fascinating new perspective on one of the great figures of modern history.
