Description

This work addresses a little-studied area - ancien regime Piedmont. It concentrates on the character and shape of mainstream political life in an area representative of much of the territory controlled by the Napoleonic regime. The book illustrates that the major problems of law and order and political polarization which beset the Revolutionary period did not disappear under Napoleon. These problems, rather than the ideological questions of national unity - were the chief concern of his Italian subjects, asserts the author, and so the question of law and order stands at the centre of this work.
