Re: The Myth of Social Mobility
In Response To: The Myth of Social Mobility ()

I've never read either book but, going by the outline given here, it appears that the message these young men took from the Napoleonic legend was that any tactic was legitimate in the pursuit of ambition.

I suppose I shall have the read one of the works cited to get an answer, but I wonder how great the social mobility was under the Empire: most of the dramatic advances were due to the Revolution.
