Summary
Jerusalem-based Falk is an internationally known scholar in the fields of psycho-history, psychobiography, and political psychology. Drawing on insights of psychoanalysis to probe Napoleon's unconscious mind, Falk offers the first full-scale psychobiography of Napoleon, focusing in particular on his narcissism and irrational, self-defeating, and self-destructive actions. The author holds a doctorate in clinical psychology; he has served in the Israel Defense Forces as a mental health officer and was on the faculty of the Hebrew U. Medical School.
