Claude de Seyssel's important political treatise, The Monarchy of France (1515) illuminates the link between warfare, the state, and the social order in the Renaissance. In his effort to describe a state capable of conquest and expansion, Seyssel envisioned a new social and political order with radical implications for the French monarchy.

Review:

"Indeed, the wealth of relatively unexplored material and its critical analysis will be precious to any reader wishing to deepen his or her knowledge of early modern French political thought, while allowing many to discover the exciting figure of Claude de Seyssel."
Nicole Hochner, Sixteenth-Century Journal 40:3 (2009) 855-856.

Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2007. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Claude de Seyssel s important political treatise, The Monarchy of France (1515) illuminates the link between warfare, the state, and the social order in the Renaissance. Raised and educated in Turin, Seyssel entered the service of the French king to facilitate the French invasion of Italy. His wide experience as a jurist, royal counselor, diplomat, propagandist, translator, historian, and prelate informed his unique political perspective. As a witness to the failures of the French in the Italian Wars, he maintained that successful conquest and occupation resulted from superior discipline and order as well as from the elimination of social conflict. In his view, a state with a well-ordered system of law and a wide base of popular support was best-suited to conquer and maintain an empire. His application of Italian political language to French society and government produced a vision of war, politics, and society with radical implications for French history.
