The Myth of Absolutism by Nicholas Henshall
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Conventionally, "absolutism" in early-modern Europe has suggested unfettered autocracy and despotism. Recently historians have questioned such comfortably simplistic views. This lively investigation of "absolutism" in action - continent-wide but centred on a detailed comparison of France and England - dissolves the traditional picture to reveal a much more complex reality; and in so doing illuminates the varied ways in which early-modern Europe was governed.
