4.0 out of 5 stars Good in parts, 4 July 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Old Regime France 1648-1788 (Paperback) (Short Oxford History of France) (Paperback)
A bit of a mixed bag. There are two good chapters: the one that covers culture and the Enlightenment, and the one that assesses the reign of Louis XV. The four chapters on the economy, society, Louis XIV and Louis XVI are disappointing, especially the last one, which should have at least tried to inject some sense of excitement into its narrative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Concise, Accurate & Worthwhile, 29 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Old Regime France 1648-1788 (Paperback) (Short Oxford History of France) (Paperback)
I must admit that I did expect this book to be a little longer but upon viewing its content there was no reason for it to be. After all it is a "short" Oxford history and every significant event/information is considered in this edition. It accurately covers economics, society, culture, politics, foreign affairs and the three kings during the period of 1648-1788 in Old Regime France.
I would certainly recommend this book to anyone with a strong interest in this most significant and fascinating history of one of Europe's most influential nations, La Belle France.
