"John Hurt's remarkable book combines detailed narrative with a wide-ranging argument. It will stand as a definitive summary of both government policies and their effects on the judges. This is a model historical study, altogether compelling."--"H-France Book Reviews"
"Hurt's argument is presented in a lively style and is backed by impressive scholarship. By highlighting the harsh treatment of the Parlements in such an effective way, Hurt has performed a real service; his work will reopen debate and give scholars of seventeenth-and eighteenth-century France cause for reflection. His book should also be compulsory reading for undergraduates as they attempt to decide whether absolutism was a historical myth or a painful reality."--"French History"
