    The most polarizing man of his era, Napoleon Bonaparte has remained a source of controversy ever since. Did his dictatorship crush the French Revolution, or carry its ideals to their logical conclusion? Was he a conqueror-tyrant who sought war for the sake of glory, or was he forced into conflict to defend his beloved France? Was he a throwback to 16th-century "absolute monarchs", or the great modernizer of 19th-century Europe? Or was he all of these things at once?

    In this revealing, compact biography, Alexander Kennedy examines Twain's extraordinary life, expertly separating fact from fiction, biography from legend. Here we see how Twain rose from an impoverished boyhood on the Mississippi to become one of the nation's most famous men, using the very material of that impoverished boyhood to propel his rise. But Twain's life also had more than its share of tragedy, and his story is also one of failure, bankruptcy, and grievous loss.
