An Encyclopaedia of Napoleona??s Europe

Alan Palmer’s An Encyclopaedia of Napoleon’s Europe is a comprehensive A-Z of life in the age of Napoleon, the years between 1797 and 1815.Artists, poets, philosophers, scientists and authors all advanced society in their own ways, while men at court and on battlefields fought gruesome wars and suffered from the perils of the age.Napoleon’s Europe, naturally, was so much more than one man, though Napoleon was a pivotal figure in contemporary history. He conquered foreign lands, passed laws, spoke regularly to the rulers of Europe, freed its people while ruling with an iron fist and gave his name to a series of wars.In the eighteen years centred on by Palmer, Russia woke up to its potential for European dominance, and nationalism seized the people of both Italy and Germany, who came together as countries rather than a series of disparate discrete regions. These countries and their noble men and women are listed with as much detail as their French counterparts.Someone who picks up the encyclopaedia will enjoy learning much about the men who shaped the times. Battles are chronicled and placed within the context of the time in which they were fought. There are detailed entries on members of Napoleon’s family and military ranks, the ministers who served him and the places in which they served. There is a thorough contents page which lists individual categories and sub-categories, which cover every conceivable theme, from the Arts to Diplomacy to Internal Affairs, Religion and Royalty.There are helpful details on the way the calendar was altered at the time, as well as biographies of the popes Pius VI and Pius VI. Palmer also provides good explanations of some of the issues of the age, including the status of the Jews, Catholic Emancipation, serfdom and slavery. This is an essential primer in the era, a useful starting point for all students of modern history.Alan Palmer was Head of the History Department at Highgate School from 1953 to 1969, when he gave up his post to concentrate on historical writing and research. He has written some thirty narrative histories, historical reference books or biographies. In 1980 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.Praise for Alan Palmer:‘A fine piece of narrative history, a combination of suspense and scholarship which actually makes you wonder will he make it?’ ANTONIA FRASER’S BOOK OF THE YEAR, Sunday Times‘Alan Palmer has done justice to [the] epic events with a lively, vivid narrative, written with the appropriate style and panache’ LAWRENCE JAMES, The Times‘A superb account of the 1812 campaign and its aftermath’ Observer

Reality Lost: Markets of Attention, Misinformation and Manipulation

This open access book looks at how a democracy can devolve into a post-factual state.The media is being flooded by populist narratives, fake news, conspiracy theories and make-believe. Misinformation is turning into a challenge for all of us, whether politicians, journalists, or citizens. In the age of information, attention is a prime asset and may be converted into money, power, and influence – sometimes at the cost of facts. The point is to obtain exposure on the air and in print media, and to generate traffic on social media platforms. With information in abundance and attention scarce, the competition is ever fiercer with truth all too often becoming the first victim.Reality Lost: Markets of Attention, Misinformation and Manipulation is an analysis by philosophers Vincent F. Hendricks and Mads Vestergaard of the nuts and bolts of the information market, the attention economy and media eco-system which may pave way to postfactual democracy. Here misleading narratives become the basis for political opinion formation, debate, and legislation. To curb this development and the threat it poses to democratic deliberation, political self-determination and freedom, it is necessary that we first grasp the mechanisms and structural conditions that cause it.
