Description - Class and State in Ancien Regime France by David Parker

This work explores the economic, social, ideological and political foundations of French absolutism. It presents French absolutism as a remarkably successful attempt to preserve the political and ideological structures of the traditional order. This reassessment runs contrary to much revisionist historiography, rejecting the widespread tendency to treat French absolutism as an instrument of either capitalism or political modernization. It also discusses a number of contentious issues such as the agrarian foundations of capitalism, the relationship between class and status, as well as the structure and ideology of the absolute state itself. It should be of interest to early modern historians of France, Britain and Europe.
