The Napoleonic Empire played a crucial role in reshaping global landscapes and in realigning international power structures on a worldwide scale. When Napoleon died, the map of many areas had completely changed, making room for Russia's ascendency and Britain's rise to world power. Thus, the volume Napoleon’s Empire: European Politics in Global Perspective aims at underlining the interconnections between regional and global developments in- and outside Europe. While taking a look at the changing faith of France’s European neighbor states, the essays also trace the redistribution of power in the major areas of imperial reconstruction: The Iberian Atlantic as well as the often neglected northern states around the Baltic Sea and the eastern Mediterranean. For the first time, essays on all countries affected by Napoleonic Imperialism are represented in one volume. 28 leading experts in the field inquire the impact of the Napoleonic era on more than 23 different countries and areas, thereby covering not only Central and Western Europe as is usually done, but also dealing with the Ibero-Atlantic Area, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe across the Baltic See and the Eastern Mediterranean, including the Ottoman Empire.
