A basic and clear account of the major country in the period of the title. I'd start my investigation of the theme with this first volume of a three volume set. ( )

A very readable and interesting history of France in the eighteenth century. It puts the Revolution in the context of developments since the death of Louis XIV. As the drama builds, you can't put the book down. ( )
