Textbook
The State in Early
Modern France
Second edition
James B. Collins
Georgetown University, Washington DC
This new edition of James Collins’s
acclaimed textbook has been revised
throughout, incorporating the
extensive recent scholarship on the
French state. It examines the recent
debates on ‘absolutism’; presents fresh
interpretations of the Fronde and of
French society in the eighteenth century;
and includes a new chapter on Louis XIV.

‘The reader who savours the full


pleasures of this book will be able
to feel that he or she, at the end of
it all, has a real grasp of both what
happened in the old Bourbon state
and how it functioned, changed and
came apart. One could scarcely ask
more of an introductory work; and one
can only regret that more supposedly
‘introductory’ textbooks do not come
up to Professor Collins’s exacting
standards.’
