Description

German history in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries is notoriously inaccessible to non-specialists. When other European countries were well on the way to becoming nation states, Germany remained frozen as a territorially-fragmented, politically and religiously-divided society. The achievement of this major contribution to the new History of Germany is to do justice to the variety and multiplicity of the period without foundering under the wealth of information it conveys.
