Debate over Warrior Pursuits

A new review of my book, Warrior Pursuits, has been published by Professor Jay M. Smith in H-France Review.

The book review editor at H-France invited me to write a response to Smith’s review, which has now been published along with Smith’s review in the November issue of H-France Review online.

I hope that the review and response provoke some debate over noble culture and civil conflict in early modern France, as well as over methodological approaches for studying elites and civil violence in comparative contexts.

The full citation for the review and response is:
