About this item

Citing Robert Descimon (b.1946) as one of the foremost scholars of his generation who offered perhaps the most profound insights into the nexus of social relations, politics, and power in France as it moved from the age of religious wars into the age of absolutism, Diefendorf notes that little of his prolific scholarship has been translated, making him a lesser known figure. This book aims to repair that oversight by offering an appreciation and extension of his work to both those already familiar with it and to those who are not. First and foremost a social historian, social history for Descimon is a story of both continuity and change. He works to decode the social ties and political practices central to the functioning of France’s ancient r&’e&gime. These essays are from historians, who, like Descimon, are known among their peers for their contributions to understanding the history of the society, politics, and culture of early modern France. They illuminate the connections between their particular historical preoccupations and the methods and insights that characterize Descimon’s scholarship.
