The 14 essays in this volume look at both the theory and practice of monarchical governments from the Thirty Years War up until the time of the French Revolution. Contributors aim to unravel the constructs of `absolutism' and `monarchism', examining how the power and authority of monarchs was defined through contemporary politics and philosophy.
