This major new book addresses the question, what is the state?, through an examination of the most important continental state of early modern Europe, France. Professor Collins combines a reinterpretation of early modern French society with a reevaluation of the French monarchical state, rejecting the absolute monarchy paradigm and offering in its place a more nuanced, balanced view of the monarchy.
