Overview

This volume is a supplement to the editor's earlier A Documentary Survey of Napoleonic France (UPA, 1994) and contains 25 additional letters, laws, decrees, treaties, and miscellaneous policy statements illustrative of administrative and governing norms and methods in the Napoleonic dictatorship.
