The Hostage Queen
Severn House Publishers
I want more!
Author's Note "The life of Marguerite de Valois was so full of drama, romance, intrigue and danger that very little in this story needed to be invented." Ms. Lightfoot you get two very big thumbs up for that comment alone. It is 1565 and France seethes with tension between the ruling Catholics and the Protestant Huguenots. Catherine de Medici wants to keep the peace and avoid a costly ...

After visiting countless bookstores in search of a illustrated dictionary less than $15, this was the only one I could find.

The book arrived in excellent condition, this will be my 1st choice in the future for purchasing books.
Read To Your Bunny (Max and Ruby)
This is a great little book for first-time parents. It is a good size to include with your gift. It is meant for adults, but is simple enough to begin reading to the baby at a very early age. Little ones will love the pictures before they can understand the words. Read it often so the child will learn books hold stories and delight.

I REMEMBER AS A KID FALLING IN LOVE WITH THE CHARECTERS AND WANTING TO BE THEM. WHEN I DEPLOYED TO IRAQ IN 03 ...

Beneath the Cross: Catholics and Huguenots in Sixteenth-Century Paris
Barbara B. Diefendorf
Oxford University Press, USA
St. Bartholomew's Day not an isolated event
In Beneath the Cross, Barbara Diefendorf clearly, eloquently, and persuasively argues that the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre must be examined not as an isolated incident, rather through the illuminating lens of the religious wars of the preceding 15 years to more completely understand the horrific events of 24 August 1572 and to properly place them within France's complex political, social, and ...

The authors profile a rich diversity of groups: those who came together over politics, religion, movies, books, yoga, mah-jongg, even motorcycles. You can hear the individuality in each group's story through the real voices of their members. ...

The French Wars of Religion, 1562-1629 (New Approaches to European History)
Mack P. Holt
Cambridge University Press
What is religious history?
This book is a wonderful read. Offered as a survey book for undergraduates on the French Wars of Religion, the author succeeds in laying out the main points of an incredibly complex series of events. He downplays the theological issues and sees the "religious issues" as social history, i.e., as a struggle ultimately over the principle of "one king, one faith, one law" that had dominated the ...
Carnival in Romans
Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie
Pantomime and tax theory - an exploration of Pre-Revolutionary France
Leroy Ladurie takes a de constructionist look at the erosion of the tax base in pre revolutionary France, and the political impacts of maintaining a large privileged elite exempt from tax, increasing the fiscal burden to be paid by the proportionly ever smaller tax paying classes. Ultimately, this led to the fall of the throne, but this book explores the pre revolutionary era prior to the ...
