My choice:

Napoleon’s Paper Kingdom: The Life and Death of Westphalia, 1807-1813 by Sam Mustafa

Admittedly a personal choice, as I was born in Westphalia. The area has not been the subject of a comprehensive, professional historical analysis for more than a century with regards to the Napoleonic era. So I am curious to learn about the latest research. It sounds promising indeed:

The author shows how Westphalia became a proving ground for the allegedly liberating and modern concepts of the French Revolution, brought by foreign conquest and enforced by a powerful new centralized state. For six years, the inhabitants of Westphalia experienced fundamental and often jarring changes in almost every aspect of their lives. They witnessed a profound clash of French and German culture, as well as new ideas about law, nationality, and politics.
