The Conqueror on a white horse. It ends with the hurried departure of the last Ottoman ruler, Abdulmecid on the Orient Express. In studying the five hundred years between those two events, the author goes beneath the surface of the bustling, cosmopolitan traveler's Constantinople to record the history of what was at once an imperial capital, a holy city, a trading entrepot, a pleasure resort and, in its cultural and intellectual life, a laboratory of modernization

Paris between empires : monarchy and revolution, 1814-1852 by Philip Mansel( Book )
26 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and French and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This was a time, too; of political turbulence and dynastic intrigue, of violence on the streets, and women manipulating men and events from their salons. In describing it Philip Mansel draws on the unpublished letters and diaries of some of the city's leading figures and of the foreigners who flocked there, among them Lady Holland, two British ambassadors, Lords Stuart de Rothesay and Normanby, and Charles de Flahaut, lover of Napoleon's step-daughter Queen Hortense. This fascinating book shows that the European ideal was as alive in the nineteenth century as it is today."--BOOK JACKET

Louis XVIII by Philip Mansel( Book )
27 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abondamment documentée, cette biographie, écrite par un auteur anglais, essaie de montrer comment "l'histoire de Louis XVIII [qui] est avant tout celle des ambitions dynastiques d'un Bourbon, d'abord comme comte de Provence, puis comme prétendant en exil et enfin comme roi de France... influa sur le cours des événements en France..."

The French émigrés in Europe and the struggle against revolution, 1789-1814 by Kirsty Carpenter( Book )
9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Emigration during the French Revolution has often been treated with scorn. Were the emigres the failures they were styled, by Balzac among others - tired remnants of a lost civilisation? This book seeks to explore the Emigration as both a cultural and political phenomenon, underpinned by the ideas of the Enlightenment and supported by some of the most brilliant writers and artists in France at the end of the eighteenth century. The emigres were political refugees, caught between the domestic turmoil of France and the international rivalries of the European powers."--Jacket

7 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Prince of Europe : the life of Charles-Joseph de Ligne, 1735-1814 by Philip Mansel( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Prince Charles-Joseph de Ligne has the paradoxical reputation of being both famous and little known. He was a Renaissance man in Enlightenment Europe: a grand aristocrat, a talented general, a provocative writer, a brilliant conversationalist, a great garden lover, a moralist and a memoirist. His desire for military glory and literary fame was as great as his appetite for lovers." "The Prince de Ligne witnessed the fall of Napoleon, who fascinated him but whom he refused to meet. He died during the Congress of Vienna, which redrew the map of Europe to the accompaniment of balls and intrigues." "Though sometimes neglected in Britain, Ligne has remained a popular historical figure in Europe. As the continent moves towards greater integration, Philip Mansel has produced a colourful and timely biography of this effortless European - a man for our time."--Jacket

Mehmed II, au XVe siècle, avait parié sur la coexistence et la tolérance mutuelle et doté son empire d'une capitale multiculturelle et multinationale. Ce compromis ottoman tint bon plus de quatre siècles avant d'être emporté par les lames de fond du nationalisme moderne et de l'industrialisation. C'est cette ville mythique qui nous est présentée ici

Three kings in Baghdad : the tragedy of Iraq's monarchy by Gerald De Gaury( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the tragic story of the short-lived Iraqi monarchy. The first king of Iraq, Faisal I, was installed by the British in 1921. Faisal, who had led the Arab Revolt and fought alongside T. E. Lawrence, was a major player in the politics of the Middle East. He was also, most importantly, pro-British and thus 'suitable' to lead an independent Iraq. His son and successor, Ghazi, a strong pan-Arab nationalist, felt very differently. He supported the first military coup in the Arab world and was said to hold German sympathies. Ghazi's suspicious death in a car accident left his son, also named Faisal, king at the age of four. So Iraq was ruled by his uncle, Abdulillah, as regent until the boy came of age. Iraq's artificially imposed monarchy came to an abrupt and bloody end in July 1958 when Faisal II and Abdulillah, along with the Prime Minister, Nuri al Said, and many members of Faisal's family, were gunned down and the country was declared a republic. Three Kings in Baghdad is a unique and timely account of this portentous moment in Iraq's history."--BOOK JACKET
