Whether Toussaint's incomprehension is genuine or disingenuous is difficult to
determine from the memoir alone. That is, Toussaint finds his arrest to be
inexplicable and the confiscation of his uniform to be imponderable and
unnecessarily cruel, given his virtue and talents and his service to France.
Nevertheless, his memoir confirms, Napoleon possesses ultimate authority, and
he possesses it legitimately because of the talents and virtues the French leader
himself has displayed in ...

A King's ship, being independent of the Governor in Council, may refuse any
service it is sent on."* The latter years of the 18th century gave rise to a
controversy which elicited a deal of interest among learned and curious
individuals. This controversy, which originated in private conversation in the
Doctor's presence, was no less than the year on which the 18th century would
terminate — 1799, or 1800. To ordinary intelligible minds the question seems
simple enough ; nevertheless, ...

But these committed Nazi memoirists, like the entrants in the Harvard contest,
were not entirely political in the sense addressed by the present collection of
essays on the political memoir, and they stopped their accounts early in the Nazi
era. Mention of the stormtroopers and their victims nevertheless suggests
important questions about the memoirs of leading Nazis. Did they resemble the
stormtroopers in being prototypical Nazis? How did they claim to have viewed the
political ...

Nevertheless, he was a pretty imposing baboon. For years, the anthropology
textbooks had been having a love affair with savanna baboons and their top-
ranking male, the alpha male. According to the books, the baboons were
complex social primates living in open grasslands; they had organized hunts, a
hierarchical rank system, and at their core was the alpha male. He led the troop
to food, spearheaded the hunts, defended against predators, kept the females in
line, changed the ...

unrelieved trauma, Savarese nevertheless acutely observes that objections to the
narcissism of the 'misery memoir' begin to appear only once so-called 'minorities'
begin to use the memoir form as a political device. In Henke's trajectory of
women's autobiography, Fraser's memoir represents the contemporary feminist
era. Henke does begin to unpick some of the contradictions in the idea of an
amnesiac autobiography, not least in Fraser's open avowal in the 'Author's Note'
that whilst ...
