Professor Jonathan Gosling discusses the manipulation of power using the example of Napoleon Bonaparte. Napoleon was born in a poor family but was able to gain status through the military until he eventually took power of the government. After gaining power, Napoleon manipulated the public, controlled the information given to the people, set up surveillance, and was fearful of anyone who showed talent or ambition.
