This book is a study of government at the centre in the important but neglected period of French history between the Regency and the 1750s. The age of the long political ascendancy of the cardinal de Fleury is of course fascinating in its own right, and richly deserves reassessment. My study has, however, three further aims. First, it explores the nature of the ancien régime in the eighteenth century, viewing it not as a set of institutional structures but as a functioning socio-political system. Second, there is a particular focus on the nature and characteristics of political crisis between.

Addressing a Society consecrated to the advance of historical studies is bound to be an awesome experience .

Addressing a Society consecrated to the advance of historical studies is bound to be an awesome experience: it is a particularly sobering one for me because the central argument of this paper would have been familiar to British historians writing in the early nineteenth century. In his Constitutional History of England, published in 1827, Hallam asserted, seemingly without fear of contradiction, that. The limitations of such nonconformist political protest as existed in the mid-eighteenth century emerge from Hunt, N. Two Early Political Associations: the Quakers and the Dissenting Deputies in the Age of Sir Robert Walpole (Oxford, 1961).

The Seven Years War, the most severe and geographically extensive yet known, dominated the mid-eighteenth century. In the course of Britain's struggle for supremacy over France the army and navy required an unprecedented quantityof gunpowder. This book supplies the first detailed study of the gunpowder trade, which was of crucial importance to the conduct of the war. It describes how gunpowder was supplied by watermills in south-east England and the hazardous procedure by which it was shipped to the main magazine at Greenwich. <BR> Dr West examines four main aspects of the gunpowder trade: supply, distribution, legislation and trade, and manufacture, paying particular attentionto the needs of the army and navy and the role of central government. In addition, attention is given to the demands of the regular gunpowder trade, of such importance to the nation's economy that it continued to thrive largelyat the expense of the needs of war.
