The making of French absolutism

£4.99

Product description

An analysis of the absolutist monarchy in France, tracing its development from the French monarchy in the 16th century to the reign of Louis XIV.

This account serves as a valuable guide to the findings of more specialist works, and offers a fresh and absorbing analysis of the functioning of royal government in a long and formative period of French history. It impinges in the process on many wider issues relating to the formation of the state and the mechanisms by which political authority is upheld.

A valuable guide for any student or anyone interested in this period of French history. The book is in good condition, with slight shelf wear and some library stamps.
