Outside France, working for the dukes of Lorraine, one finds a very different late mannerist style in the artists Jacques Bellange, Claude Deruet and Jacques Callot. Having little contact with the French artists of the period, they developed a heightened, extreme, and often erotic mannerism (including night scenes and nightmare images), and excellent skill in etching.

This volume brings together an international team of experts who have synthesized and summarized the most recent research on French history of the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. Using a topical approach to provide broad thematic coverage of the period from 1500 to 1660, each chapter focuses on a specific area of French history: politics and the state, the economy, society and culture, religion, gender and the family, and France's burgeoning overseas empire, which was constructed in this period. The result is the most up-to-date synthesis of this period, showing how recent scholarship has significantly revised the traditional narrative of French history.

Though I generally prefer narrative history, and this book includes very little narrative beyond its chapter on the Wars of Religion, I found all the various authors' styles so attractive that I was sucked in to reading the thematic material in the rest of the book as well! Therefore I highly recommend the book. I've recently read a more detailed book on the Wars of Religion, but found the material here a very clear outline, particularly in conjunction with the several page chronology in the back of the book which expands on the text material, not only for the Wars of Religion, but for the entire period covered in the text. The brief section of the French experience overseas was especially well handled--I felt I learned the key points for understanding this time period in just a few pages. And as implied above, I also enjoyed reading and learned a lot from the many sections on economics, politics, and social trends. As well, most of the locales mentioned in the text are actually on maps included in the book, which can sometimes not be the case with history books. One of the best book I've read on Early Modern Europe.
