Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 088295735X, Paperback)A well-crafted, brief history by John Gagliardo provides analysis and interpretation of the three decades of European history generally called the Age of Enlightend Despotism. After a survey of the origin of the term and scholarly attempts to decide its meaning, a discussion of the Enlightenment provides the background for the author's investigation of the reforms of Frederick the Great, Joseph II, Catherine II, and other figures of this epoch.
