The Zenith of European Monarchy and Its Elites: The Politics of Culture, 1650-1750 (European History in Perspective)
By the mid-sevententh century several European monarchies were collapsing. Focusing on a key elite bonding strategy, this new survey shows how monarchs resolved to work with, rather than against, their elites. Nicholas Henshall's synthesis offers an argument for the coherence of the period - as the height of European monarchy and its elites.
