Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
This is a superb and magisterial book, a triumph of a lifetime of research, discussion and reflection. No other comprehensive study of the life and achievement of Louis XIV is so sophisticated overall, so balanced in judging Louis and his family & colleagues,, so successful in placing the king in all relevant cultural, political & geographical contexts, and so elegantly readable.
