Tuesday, 21 October 2014

The University of Newcastle's Professor Philip Dwyer has been shortlisted for the 2014 Prime Minister's Literary Award for Citizen Emperor: Napoleon in Power 1799-1815.

This second volume of Professor Dwyer's outstanding biography, both new and comprehensive, sheds further fresh light on one of history's most charismatic leaders. It is an ambitious, definitive work that separates myth from history to offer us anew one of the great figures of modern history.

A Napoleonic scholar, Professor Dwyer studied in Perth, Berlin and Paris, where he was a student of France's preminent Napoleonic scholar Jean Tulard. He has published widely on the Revolutionary and Napoleonic eras, and is Director of the Centre for the History of Violence at the University of Newcastle.
