Napoleons Invasion Of Middle East At My

Napoleon’s Invasion of the Middle East

At my book blog for my new publication on Bonaparte’s Egypt expedition, I have been putting up some texts related to the misadventure The first close-up Western view of Egypt’s Bedouin is posted today; ominously, this bit of colonial anthropology was made possible by some French scientists (savants) being taken hostage for ransom just after Gen. Bonaparte took the port city of Alexandria.

This of PBS documentary on Bonaparte, which covers the Egyptian expedition, is worth looking at if you haven’t.

Enjoy!
