Pressestimmen'This collection does a fine job of conveying recent scholarly trends on Napoleonic France and the Napoleonic Empire as well as on the late Holy Roman Empire and its immediate successor states in German-speaking lands. Far more than just surveying or synthesizing, however, these essays mark important and original contributions to understanding the conception, practice and experience of empire in their respective areas. In both respects this volume should prove of interest to students of any and all of these fields, and should help stimulate future comparative studies across the Franco-German divide.'
