About the Authors
  • This illustrated collection of specially-commissioned essays by a team of leading scholars addresses the theme of sovereignty and the sources and variety of political power in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Europe. A notable feature is the attention given to visual material, which previous scholars have been slow to exploit and which is reflected in the large number of distinctive and unusual illustrations. The book's diverse themes were all illuminated by the writings of Professor Ragnhild Hatton (1913-95) to whose memory this collection is dedicated.

    • Highly illustrated
    • Team of excellent contributors
    • Covers a diverse range of subjects

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Under the able editorship of Robert Oresko, G.C. Gibbs, and H.M. Scott, this volume has transcended the usual constraints on Festschrifts to bounce a magisterial contribution in its own right....the book is handsomely produced, lavishly illustrated, well annotated, and abundantly indexed." A.L. Fell, The Sixteenth Century Journal

    " helped to be presistent in pursuing one's objective, something for which we must also thank the editors for this fine book." The International History Review
