Reviews

[T]his concise informative study makes a rich and unique contribution to our knowledge of a French city during the Wars of Religion.

Jeannine Olson, Moreana

Here is a book that chronicles a preexisting independence and the pursuit, throughout the religious wars, of practical and local politics at the expense of religious passions. Its achievement is to tell an exciting story that demonstrates how set generalizations must sometimes bow to the protean nature of historical reality.

J. H. M. Salmon, Sixteenth Century Journal
