Written by relatives, court habitués, foreign visitors, and others, documents illustrating aspects of Louis the XIV's rule are arranged into eight sections, including the king's relationships with court aristocrats, reforming the provinces, and absolutism and the churches. Beik (history, Emory U.) includes a brief introduction of each document's author and provides a broad introduction to French absolutism. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
