Translated From The German By Eden & Cedar Paul. 327 pages... Gambler-in-chief at the great roulette board of human destiny, Joseph Fouché is one of the most amazing figures in history.

He is the most remarkable politician the world has ever known, says Stefan Zweig, and, by way of proof, offers a brilliant and fascinating biography. Against the flaming background of the French Revolution we see Fouché, hitherto unknown, a semi-priest, take his seat as member of the dreaded National Convention of France. When the people cry for the blood of the aristocrats he proceeds to Lyons, which has risen against the revolutionists, and plunges into an orgy of murder and blasphemy- when the people turn to moderation he repudiates his former companions, helps to speed Robespierre to the guillotine, and becomes the most moderate of moderates.

His rise is meteoric, his fall equally so. Suddenly Citizen Fouché sinks into obscure poverty, earning his crust of bread by petty spying, even, at one tune, by becoming a swineherd. Then in the next era Fouché rises again to new and greater heights as Minister of Police to Napoleon. Not only does he spy out Napoleons enemies, he even uses Josephine to spy on the Emperor himself.

Joseph Fouché, the man who killed aristocrats and tended swine, finally becomes Duke of Otranto, millionaire, aristocrat, master-spy, and super-blackguard. From the pages of this volume emerge not only Fouché, but some of the great figures of history: Napoleon, Robespierre, Louis XVIII, Talleyrand, Lafayette. To read it is to gain knowledge of sixty of the most volcanic years the world has known.
