First Edition. 501 pp. Original cloth. Near Fine, without dust jacket. '[F]ills a need long felt by students of the history of political thought, that of having at their disposal, within the pages of a single volume, an account of French social and political thought from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment. No other book digests so well such a large chunk of pre-Revolutionary thought. In its meticulous scholarship Professor Keohane's book is a worthy heir to W. F. Church's studies of constitutionalism and reason of state; in its attention to the diffusion of concepts of interest and doctrines of laissez faire, her work is a worthy successor to Lionel Rothkrug's sprawling investigation of the origins of the French Enlightenment. She is well read in both the primary and secondary sources, and has set forth a well-organized, clearly written synthesis that will be of interest to scholars for many years to come. To those scholars who study Continental thought, Keohane's book will come as a useful corrective to the biases of the textbook account of early modern political theory. So provincial have the textbooks of the English-speaking world been that readers are likely to infer either that Bodin, Bossuet, and Montesquieu did not exist or, if they did, were worth less combined than a single John Locke' (Mark Hulliung, review for Eighteenth-Century Studies, Vol. 17, No. 1, Autumn, 1983, pp. 69-72).
