About the Author

Patrice Gueniffey is Director of the Raymond Aron Center for Political Research at L'Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris. One of France's leading historians of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic ages, he is the author of Bonaparte, the monumental first volume of the definitive modern French biography of Napoleon.


The epic of the self-made man revealed... Masterful... The great virtue of this biography is that it peels away the myth to reveal the epic underneath... Savor the first volume of this fascinating biography of a character who, as Madame de Stael wrote, made 'mankind anonymous by monopolizing celebrity alone.'--Telerama
Magnificent...Patrice Gueniffey's Bonaparte is beautifully written, and its portrait of Talleyrand is masterly. If you need more Napoleon, Gueniffey's next volume is a good bet.-- (07/01/2015)
[The book's] mastery of the sources and authorities is remarkable...[Gueniffey's] principal interest lies not in his recreation of the battles, but in how they are connected not only to the man's psychology and character, but to the tumultuous history swirling around this most fabulous punctuated by Gueniffey's probing, his skepticism about much in Napoleonic historiography that he finds overwrought or mistaken, and his incessant questioning of just how much can be known for sure about Napoleon, whose motives are so elusive. Gueniffey's work, once completed, will be the dominant 'life' of our generation and a few to come.-- (10/01/2015)
Bonaparte is that rare sort of book that you start with curiosity and finish with regret that it's over. We learn much and it never ceases to entertain. Patrice a worker doubling as an artist--in short, a great historian.--L'Express
