By Donna Bohanan

This booklet analyses the evolving dating among the French monarchy and the French the Aristocracy within the early sleek interval. New interpretations of the absolutist kingdom in France have challenged the orthodox imaginative and prescient of the interplay among the crown and elite society. through targeting the fight of significant executive to manage the outer edge, Bohanan hyperlinks the literature on collaboration, patronage and taxation with study at the social origins and constitution of provincial nobilities. 3 provinical examples, Provence, Dauphine and Brittany, illustrate the ways that elites organised and mobilised via vertical ties (ties of dependency according to patronage) have been co-opted or subverted by means of the crown.

The monarchy's luck in elevating extra money from those pays d'etats depended on its skill to juggle a collection of other techniques, each one conceived based on the particularity of the social, political and institutional context of the province. Bohanan exhibits that the options and expedients hired via the crown assorted from province to province; conceived on someone foundation, they endure the indicators of ad hoc responses instead of a gradnoise plan to centralise.
