Editorial Review
British statesman and author ARCHIBALD PHILIP PRIMROSE, 5TH EARL OF ROSEBERY (1847-1929) served two terms as Foreign Secretary and one controversial tenure as Prime Minister in 1894-5. His political experience combined with his abiding interest in all things imperial surely makes him one of the most intriguing historians to write about the life of Napoleon. In this monograph, first published in 1900, Lord Rosebery looks at Napoleon's final years and the legacy he left behind, expounding upon the previous writings about the French emperor, especially with regards to his doubts about their veracity and completeness, and offering his thoughts on Napoleon's life in exile, the question of what title he should be afforded, Napoleon's impact upon democracy, and much more. This curious volume of 19th-century history will intrigue students of Napoleon and of historical commentary alike.
