What is the State? Combining a reinterpretation of early modern French society with a reevaluation of the French monarchical state, this study rejects the absolute monarchy paradigm. Its revisionist focus is on the problems of the Old Regime within the context of their own political system.

Anthony Zupancic
Convincing account of the formation of France as state, primarily under Louis XIV. Argues, successfully, against the use of "absolutism" as interchangeable with "totalitarianism" or even "despotism."
