Boston: D.C.Heath and Company, 1963. — 120 p.Excerpts from prominent French and English historians examine both the beneficial and negative aspects of the reign of Louis X1V upon the future development of France.“ Louis XIV did more good for his country than twenty of his predecessors together and what he accomplished fell far short of what he might have done.” Voltaire.“Louis XIV carried the principle of monarchy to its utmost limit. He left the nation crushed by war, mutilated by banishments, and impatient of the yoke which it felt to be ruinous, Men were worn-out, the treasury empty, all relationships strained by the violence of tension . Things had reached the point where, if a great king did not appear, there would be a great revolution.“ Albert Sorel
