Napoleonland: Return of the King

Napoleonland: Return of the King | Wahl World History | Scoop.it

"Nearly 200 years after his death, Napoleon Bonaparte is finally getting the greatest honor our age can bestow: his own theme park. Napoleonland -- stop laughing -- was concocted by a former French minister to rival Disneyland in its immersive fun and totemic cultural status. Shopping! Dining! Re-enactments of the Battle of Austerlitz! Not a bad rehabilitation for an all-conquering megalomaniacal exiled emperor."  Culture and heritage are packaged in places such as theme parks as a commodity--what should we make of these spaces?  What do they say about the society that creates them?  What are the economic, cultural and political motives for creating such as space?

The AfDB's crystal-gazing reveals how crucial policy decisions must be taken now for the future health of the continent...

Events have a funny way of leapfrogging the futurologists. Many Tunisians, Egyptians and Libyans may have dreamt of freedom, but few of them saw the Arab Spring coming. A bullish new report by economists at the African Development Bank (AfDB), "Africa in 50 years' time", lays out the challenge that brave policy decisions taken now will determine the pace of Africa's progress.
