The Oxford Handbook of the French Revolution
The Oxford Handbook of the French Revolution brings together a sweeping range of expert and innovative contributions to offer engaging and thought-provoking insights into the history and historiography of this epochal event. Each chapter presents the foremost summations of academic thinking on key topics, along with stimulating and provocative interpretations and suggestions for future research directions. Placing core dimensions of the history of the French Revolution in their transnational and global contexts, the contributors demonstrate that revolutionary times demand close analysis of sometimes tiny groups of key political actors - whether the king and his ministers or the besieged leaders of the Jacobin republic - and attention to the deeply local politics of both rural and urban populations. Identities of class, gender and ethnicity are interrogated, but so too are conceptions and practices linked to citizenship, community, order, security, and freedom: each in their way just as central to revolutionary experiences, and equally amenable to critical analysis and reflection. This volume covers the structural and political contexts that build up to give new views on the classic question of the 'origins of revolution'; the different dimensions of personal and social experience that illuminate the political moment of 1789 itself; the goals and dilemmas of the period of constitutional monarchy; the processes of destabilisation and ongoing conflict that ended that experiment; the key issues surrounding the emergence and experience of 'terror'; and the short- and long-term legacies, for both good and ill, of the revolutionary trauma - for France, and for global politics.
The Institutions of France Under the Absolute Monarchy 1598 1789 Volume 2
Mousnier continues his massive and masterly history of France's transition from the Old Regime to the New. Mousnier's subject is the organization of the state, from the Council at the summit to the most humble clerks, guards, and attendants. He traces the gradual transformation of France from a judiciary state to a financial and executive bureaucracy, from a state and society based on hereditary statuses to one based on talents, personal capacities, and achievements, from the might of the sword to the power of the pen.
The Sovereign Council of New France
Cahall, Raymond Du Bois. The Sovereign Council of New France: A Study in Canadian Constitutional History. New York: Columbia University Press, 1915. 274 pp. Reprint available February, 2005 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. 1-58477-467-3. Cloth. $80. * The Sovereign Council was a governmental body established by France in 1663 to administer its colony in the St. Lawrence Valley. Unusually powerful for a colonial government, the council was the primary legislative and legal authority of New France. It had the power to select judges and minor officials, control public funds and commerce with the mother country, regulate the fur trade and set policy on local affairs. Cahall treats the council's history, organization, procedure and functions, assesses its effectiveness and evaluates its achievements and failures. This valuable study was originally published as Volume LXV, Number 1 in Columbia's series Studies in History, Economics and Public Law.
The State in Early Modern France
This major new book addresses the question, what is the state?, through an examination of the most important continental state of early modern Europe, France. Professor Collins combines a reinterpretation of early modern French society with a reevaluation of the French monarchical state, rejecting the absolute monarchy paradigm and offering in its place a more nuanced, balanced view of the monarchy. His revisionist focus is on the problems of the Old Regime within the context of their own political system.
