In my opinion the best of the volumes in the Fontana history of Europe series simply because of the fairly equal coverage it provides to the Ottoman Empire and Muscovy as well as the western european countries that typically get the most pages in these types of books.

For Louis XIV and the courtly life of those who imitated Versailles, as well as a lot of background on daily life in late 17th century Europe this book has been surpassed by The Pursuit of Glory.
