Editorial Reviews


"Blood and Violence in Early Modern a close and deep examination of vindicatory violence among France's nobles from the late Middle Ages to the mid-seventeenth century.... Carroll contributes greatly to our understanding of the nature of violence in the early modern years and forces us to think deeply about influential models."--Journal of Modern History

"Stuart Carroll's research provides a powerful corrective to the notion that a contralizing 'absolutist' state effectively marginalized noble violence and pushed it to the peripheries of the kingdom in the early modern period. This book provides ample evidence of vindicatory violence throughout the extensive jurisdiction of the parlement de Paris, even within the central region of Ile-de-France. Blood and Violence in Early Modern France contributes to the growing historical literature critiquing 'absolutist' historiography by re-examining French politics and violence from new perspectives."--Brian Sandberg, Journal of Social History
