Congress of Vienna Site

The Congress of Vienna site coming soon . . . along with more on Napoleon and the Napoleonic Age.

I have been excited, too, to read the first pre-publication reviews of Vienna 1814. Most of these are available online, like the excellent one in Publishers Weekly and the recent one in Booklist, which called it outstanding, but here's an excerpt from a brand new one from the Library Journal. In its starred review, the Library Journal wrote: "King does a superb job of evoking the bedazzling social scene . . . This is a worthy contribution to the study of a critical historical event long neglected by historians. It should be in every European history collection." More to come on the Congress here and at the website, as we get closer to the release date.
