Civilization and madness; community and class; bureaucracy, corruption, and revolution—these essays range from social history to political history and the history of ideas. All take a strong interpretive stand in the manner of the man to whom they are dedicated. Together they make a major contribution to the scholarship on sixteenth-century and seventeenth-century Europe. In the presentation of these original essays, it is justly noted that J. H. Hexter served as the conscience of his fellow scholars for over thirty years—a distinguished tribute accompanied by the best work by the best people in the field. Former students are among the contributors, as are some of J. H. Hexter's colleagues and friends, including two that he frequently engaged in debate, Geoffrey Elton and Lawrence Stone.

Born in Memphis, Tennessee, J. H. Hexter received his B.A. degree from the University of Cincinnati and his Ph.D. degree from Harvard University. From 1939 to 1957 he taught at Queens College, CUNY. He then spent seven years as a member of the faculty of Washington University, to which he returned on his retirement from Yale University; where he taught from 1964 to 1978. Among his numerous awards are two Guggenheim Fellowships, a Fulbright Fellow­ship, a fellowship from the Ford Foundation and one from the Institute for Advanced Study.

From the Essays:

"In 1700 London was different in its appearance from any other city in Europe. . . . It was unlike Amsterdam, which was dominated by ranks of substantial and architecturally pretentious houses overlooking tree-lined peripheral canals, which served their merchant and banker owners as places of residence, storehouses, and shops; it was also unlike Paris, dominated partly by the architectural and planning achievements of the crown—the Pont Neuf, the Louvre, the Place Royale, the Place Dauphine, and the Palais Royal-and partly by the rambling palaces of "les Grands" in their private hotels in the Marais; and it was unlike Florence or Rome, dominated by the stunning architectural extravagances of enormously wealthy religious and secular princes. London's unique appearance in 1700 was the product of England's unique features: social segregation; political participation; an impoverished crown; the concentration of many functions in a single city; and an ideology that exalted life in the country."
—from "The Residential Development of the West End of London in the Seventeenth Century," by Lawrence Stone

"I think that both socialist and classical anti­liberals have been so intent on the location of economic man that they have taken account only of those phenomena which indicate his presence, and have suggested that one set of chromosomes always drove out another, with the result that somewhere in the eighteenth century or the nineteenth must be found the moment when political man died and economic man reigned in his stead. It is now in doubt if such a moment ever occurred at all. It seems that the classical ideal quite simply did not die; that it was reborn with the great recovery of aristocracy which marks the later seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, with the result that property was always discussed in the political context of authority and liberty."
—from "Authority and Property: The Question of Liberal Origins," by J. G. A. Pocock
