4.0 out of 5 stars

on 27 February 2010
This book is the result of an international conference held in Edinburgh in 1976.

Instead of the usual individual papers lined up discretely and more or less remotely after one another, this book offers 13 themes on which two scholars, one French and one British, write in turn.

The approach is mostly one from a point of view of the general history, either political, social, or diplomatic.
