Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Binding: Paperback

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Paperback

Description:

Paperback. 332 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.This book uses the Breton experience to address two fundamental historiographical issues: the meaning of absolutism and the nature of early-modern French society. It abandons the old framework that opposed orders to classes, and instead seeks to find the central meaning of the evolution of the French state in the maintenance of order (especially the preservation of property). Professor Collinss main purpose, illustrated by his fusion of economic, social and institutional approaches, is to combine social and politicalinstitutional history, so long separated in works on this field. Contrary to much received wisdom, Professor Collins argues that absolutism was more facade than reality, and that French society was much more mobile than generally believed. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9780521533140
