Book News
Rather than attempt a definitive biography of the 19th-century French leader, prolific biographer McLynn (literature, Strathclyde U.) synthesizes the most reliable knowledge. He figures only the specialist is interested in the many and often contradictory sources for asserting a particular event, and so substitutes detailed notes with listings of indicative literature. The 1997 edition seem to have been published in Britain by Jonathan Cape Limited. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
