This is a study of Europe during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries - a period of economic and cultural upheaval, of dramatic changes in politics, society, and religion, and of constant warring among the emergent states. Richard Bonney draws the many strands of this complex history into a comprehensive and exciting account. Based on extensive research, The European Dynastic States is rich in detail and original in approach. It covers such diverse themes as the Reformation, witchcraft, diplomacy, populationstructure, the growth of capitalism, wars of religion, and wars of expansion. Professor Bonney also examines the Scandinavian countries and Russia, areas frequently neglected by historians. Notes, maps, a chronology, and a guide to further reading will make this book indispensable for students ofearly modern Europe.

Editorial Reviews

'Bonney is up to the task. He does a masterful job of imposing form on an enormous sprawl of diverse material ... essentially a reference book, a compact source of basic information about the first phase of the development of the modern nation state ... This is an excellent book. Itaccomplishes its purpose as a reference work without being impenetrable, it adds thought-provoking interpretation that is not whimsical, and it is up-to-date without being an instant anachronism.'William H. Cobb, East Carolina University, Journal of the Association of Historians in North Carolina, Vol. 2, Fall 1994
