While synthesizing and passing on to students the results of recent research, this book also emphasizes the fascination and controversy of Louis XIV's reign and its effect on his European neighbours. The issues influencing Louis's absolute rule and the extent to which he had real options are examined.

Review:

Wilkinson's text remains eminently readable, written as it is in a down-to-earth, interesting and accessible style. School pupils really like this book...Wilkinson's book remains an enjoyable as well as an invaluable textbook for school pupils, and provides them with a very balanced assessment of Louis XIV's character and achievements.
