THE NAPOLEONIC SCHOLARSHIP JOURNAL

 

Volume 1 - Number 5

December 2013



 




I am proud to send you issue No. 5 of Napoleonic Scholarship: The Journal of the International Napoleonic Society. Due to circumstances beyond our control this issue suffered a significant delay. However, as always, Alexander Mikaberidze has put together an outstanding collection of top scholarship in our field. We are already planning the next issue and I urge you to submit papers for consideration. I am quite sad that Alex, my close friend and colleague for many years, is resigning as Editor-in‑Chief due to increasing work commitments. However, I am delighted that another close friend, Dr. Wayne Hanley, has agreed to accept the position. Wayne is Chair of the Department of History at West Chester University in Pennsylvania. Wayne is a top scholar and I have every confidence that he will do an outstanding job. You can reach him at whanley@wcupa.edu.
This year is the 5th anniversary of our founder and my friend Ben Weider's death. I am proud that this journal and other INS activities are still a major part of his Napoleonic legacy.

I present you with great pleasure issue four of Napoleonic Scholarship. This issue is larger than previous issues as we received a record number of outstanding submissions. In this issue you will find articles from scholars from around the world on a wide range of Napoleonic topics. As always, we take great pride in being the only English language academic journal dedicated to Napoleonic history. I again thank our editor-in-chief, Alexander Mikaberitze, and our production editor, Rowayda Guirguis, for their hard work in making this an outstanding issue. The next issue promises to be equally outstanding and will include some papers from our recent International Napoleonic Congress in Moscow.

I am pleased to welcome you to the third issue of Napoleonic Scholarship, and the first issue since 1998. This past year has been very eventful for the INS. When I became president I was determined to move the INS forward in ways that would honor Ben Weider's legacy and reflect the sholarship that is the essence of our Society. This journal is a major part of what we are all about. It is only English-language scholarly journal dedicated to the study of Napoleonic history. I was most fortunate in being able to recruit Alexander Mikaberitze, one of the brightest young stars in our field, to serve as editor-in-chief. Helped by a distinguished editorial review committee, as well as our production editor, Rowayda Guirguis, we have created what I hope you will agree is an excellent issue. We encourage you to give us any feedback you wish, as well as to consider contributing to the 2011 issue.

This journal, and all other activities of the INS, were made possible by our founder and first president, Ben Weider. We believe that the journal reflects his spirit, and it is to him that we dedicate this issue of Napoleonic Scholarship.

Welcome to the second edition of Napoleonic Scholarship. We are gratified by the overwhelmingly positive response to the first issue.

In this issue, we present papers from four continents and seven countries. To bring to western scholars material never before translated, especially from Russia and Eastern Europe, we offer work by two Russian scholars.

The International Napoleonic Society (INS) has held four International Congresses - the first in Alessandria, Italy, in 1997; the second in Tel Aviv, Israel, in 1999; the third in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, in 2000; the fourth in Dinard, France, in 2005. There are currently 41 affiliated countries.

This journal is dedicated to bringing together important Napoleonic scholarship from around the world and making it available to scholars, history departments, and libraries worldwide.

Producing "the first" of anything is always exciting, and that has certainly been true with this first issue of Napoleonic Scholarship.

Thanks go to our scholars for their contributions and especially Don Howard for his invaluable advice and support. And most of all, many thanks go to Ben Weider for making this all possible. His personal and professional support have made the production of this journal a most pleasant experience.
