Monarchy, Aristocracy and the State in Europe 1300 - 1800 is an important survey of the relationship between monarchy and state in early modern European history. Spanning five centuries and covering England, France, Spain, Germany and Austria, this book considers the key themes in the formation of the modern state in Europe.
The relationship of the nobility with the state is the key to understanding the development of modern government in Europe. In order to understand the way modern states were formed, this book focusses on the implications of the incessant and costly wars which European governments waged against each other, which indeed propelled the modern state into being.
Monarchy, Aristocracy and the State in Europe 1300-1800 takes a fascinating thematic approach, providing a useful survey of the position and role of the nobility in the government of states in early modern Europe.

Zmora's short, stimulating essay in Routledge's Historical Connections series, while echoing some of Dewald's conclusions, is a tightly argued interpretation of the interrelationship of the evolution of the modern state, the monarchy, and the aristocracy. Briefly, the expensive and brutally competitive European state system shaped the structure of the nobility, assimilating them and allowing a means of exercising power and gaining wealth. Zmora carefully examines the chief states of western Europe, including the exceptional English situation. Based largely on European scholarship, this title is recommended for upper division students and above..
