Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For readers already familiar with the basic landscape, Bonney expertly points out usually overlooked features and offers many fresh perspectives."—History: Reviews of New Books

"This is a book which will be invaluable for student use and an authoritative guide for scholars in a wide variety of fields."—Renaissance Quarterly

"Richard Bonney's work is a remarkably successful survey and detailed introduction to early modern political history...The European Dynastic States is an informed and innovative addition to the historical literature on early modern Europe."—Sixteenth Century Journal

"This is a fine work of scholarship, giving an almost encyclopedic treatment of European political life in Early Modern Europe. The book has a wealth of useful information, including the chronology, list of rulers, and several good maps."—Brian Nance, University of South Carolina

"An excellent text for use in courses on the Reformation, or, more broadly, the Confessional Age (1500-1650). Fills a real need for a European-wide treatment of both political events and related social/structural questions."—Edmund M. Kern, Lawrence University
