Napoleon's Legacy: Problems of Government in Restoration Europe

£5.99

Traditionally, the Restoration has been regarded by historians as a period in which European governments returned to the reactionary policies which prevailed before the upheavals of 1789, and which involved an outright rejection of the reforms of the Napoleonic era. This text challenges this interpretation and argues that surprising loyalty to Napoleonic policies was sometimes shown. The problems of dealing with new ideologies, accommodating the interests of old elites, and keeping the benefits of recent reforms were broadly similar across Europe, and provide a connecting theme throughout the volume.
