Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These years also encompassed the birth, maturation, and waning of the Enlightenment. Leonard Krieger shows how the monarchical tradition and the new intellectual developments were reflected in the latter half of the period during the rule of "philosopher kings," the enlightened absolutists. He analyses, too, the origins of a movement toward representative government and the stirrings of political and social revolt that would bring the period to an abrupt end.

Synopsis:

The one hundred years that preceded the French Revolution witnessed the rise of kings to unmatched power and influence in European affairs.

Synopsis:

This series provides six original, thorough, and well-balanced volumes for courses in European history from the Renaissance to the present.
