This guide is designed to provide detail on rather more than the ever-popular military aspects of the period, and to cover the whole of Europe. The text covers the principal monarchs and statesmen of the period, the various embargo acts and the Anglo-American war.

In addition it provides chronologies of important events, biographies of key figures, a glossary of terms, and an extended, annotated bibliography arranged by topic. It is designed to be a reader-friendly desk companion for continuous use and is aimed at undergraduates and the general reader.
