Editorial Reviews

Review

?A short but suggestive study that seeks common elements in three early-18th-century revolts. The uprisings in question are those of the Camisards, the Protestant-led insurrection that erupted in Cevennes in 1705; the 1705 revolt of the kingdom of Aragon against the new Spanish king, Philip V; and the Hungarian uprising known as the Rakoczi revolt.... The authors, both specialists in Central European history, offer brief narrative accounts of each of these uprisings together with a discussion of explanatory theories of revolution. Their conclusion suggests that these very different revolts were actually quite similar.... The authors also argue that the revolts should be considered as attempts to defend traditional local rights and provincial liberties against the encroachments of the modern state. This is not a new ... interpretation of early modern revolts, but the book affords its readers--most of whom will be history students--an opportunity to review these three uprisings from a comparative perspective. Included is an up-to-date bibliography of each of the three revolts. Upper-division undergraduates and above.?-Choice
