In this vivid history, master storyteller and world-renowned historian Juan Cole tells the story of Napoleon's invasion of Egypt in 1798. Revealing Napoleon's reasons for leading the expedition against Egypt and showcasing the young general's fascinating views of the Orient, Cole delves into the psychology of both the military titan and his entourage. He paints a multifaceted portrait of the daily travails of the soldiers in Napoleon's army, including how they imagined Egypt, how their expectations differed from what they found, and how they grappled with military challenges in a foreign land. Cole explains how Napoleon's invasion, the first modern attempt to conquer the Arab world, invented and crystallized the rhetoric of liberal imperialism. Download and start listening now!

    " Definitively proves that invading the Middle East is for suckers. Juan Cole is one of the most informed and sane voices in the national discussion of anything related to Middle Eastern history, culture or politics. "

    " This was a lot denser than I'd expected, and I think I really was looking for was the story in "Mirage", of the Savants, though this Napoleon story was interesting as well. "

    " Golly, Cole can turn an interesting subject into a complete bore. His history is probably masterful, but his book is characterless and dreary. "
