Description:

In thisnbsp;vivid and timely history, Juan Colenbsp;tells the story of Napoleon's invasion of Egypt.nbsp;Revealing the young general's reasons for leading the expedition against Egypt in 1798 andnbsp;showcasing his fascinating views of the Orient, Colenbsp;delves into the psychology of the military titan and his entourage.nbsp;He paints anbsp;multi-facetednbsp;portrait of the dailynbsp;travails of the soldiers in Napoleon's army, includingnbsp;how they imagined Egypt, how their expectations differed from what they found, and how theynbsp;grappled with military challengesnbsp;in a foreign land.nbsp;Colenbsp;ultimately revealsnbsp;how Napoleon'snbsp;invasion, the first modern attempt to invade the Arab world,nbsp;invented and crystallized the rhetoric of liberal imperialism. nbsp; You can visit Juan Cole's Blog, Informed Comment at http://www.juancole.com/
