Juan Cole tells the story of Napoleon's invasion of Egypt in 1789, the first modern attempt to invade the Arab world which invented and crystallized the rhetoric of liberal imperialism. Delving into the psychology of the military titan and his entourage, Cole paints a multi-faceted portrait of the daily travails of the soldiers in Napoleon's army.
