Listing Detail Tabs

In the period dominated by the reign of Louis XIV, Europe developed a cosmopolitan civilization.

The reasons for this are examined in chapters on society and economic life; the effects of it are traced in chapters on art, literature and the intellectual climate of opinion.

The author analyses those features which mark the 'early enlightenment': the possibility of progress, the concept of social utility and the demand for free enquiry and rational reform; and argues that, in a period which saw much war, the ideal of a tribunal of Europe struck firm root.

The influence of France and Louis's role as catalyst in many fields are given due weight, but the author has drawn her examples and her illustrations from as many European countries as possible.

Professor Hatton holds the Chair of International History at the London School of Economics and is the author of Charles XII of Sweden and George I, Elector and King, as well as various biographical studies, monographs and articles.

Europe in the Age of Louis XIV by Ragnhild Hatton is a 1969 first edition published by Thames and Hudson, London, and is part of the Library of European Civilization series.

It is a larger-format 263-page 15x21cm pictorial card soft cover packed with detailed maps, and excellent photographs and illustrations.

It is in good condition, with markings with a red pen on several pages and a curled corner at the back and light wear to the front cover edge.
