Blurb: Review highlight: Lockyer's book is a wonderful textbook on the period in question, written with a delicacy of prose rarely found among contemporary academics of similar stature. His main theme is that early modern Europe witnessed the struggle between the "liberties" of the nobility and the centralizing inclinations among the various sovereigns which eventually gave rise to absolutism (with France as the example par excellence).
