Rich in detail and original in approach, The European Dynastic States, 1494-1660 studies diverse themes in this time period of history, such as Reformation, witchcraft, diplomacy, population structure, the growth of capitalism, wars of religion, and wars of expansion. Bonney includes in his study the Scandinavian countries and Russia, areas frequently neglected by historians. Notes, maps, a chronology, and a guide to further reading will make this indispensable for students of early modern Europe.

About the Author:

Review:


"For readers already familiar with the basic landscape, Bonney expertly points out usually overlooked features and offers many fresh perspectives."--History: Reviews of New Books


"This is a book which will be invaluable for student use and an authoritative guide for scholars in a wide variety of fields."--Renaissance Quarterly


"Richard Bonney's work is a remarkably successful survey and detailed introduction to early modern political history...The European Dynastic States is an informed and innovative addition to the historical literature on early modern Europe."--Sixteenth Century Journal


"This is a fine work of scholarship, giving an almost encyclopedic treatment of European political life in Early Modern Europe. The book has a wealth of useful information, including the chronology, list of rulers, and several good maps."--Brian Nance, University of South Carolina


"An excellent text for use in courses on the Reformation, or, more broadly, the Confessional Age (1500-1650). Fills a real need for a European-wide treatment of both political events and related social/structural questions."--Edmund M. Kern, Lawrence University


"Those who seek a reliable guide to the turbulent political history of post-Renaissance Europe need look no further."--Times Literary Supplement


"A strikingly different approach."--Paul Teverow, Missouri Southern State College


"A superb annotated bibliography for each chapter....It will give faculty and students valuable direction on the formation of the regional dynastic states and the varied aspects of their structures and policies."--Teaching History


"A useful introduction for students that will also serve as an up-to-date reference work for specialists in early modern Europe."--The Historian
