"It is an integrated view set out by a historian of great learning, acumen and distinction. No one teaching or learning about the eighteenth century should neglect it." London Review of Books <!--end-->
Review of the Second Edition:
"Hufton follows a historiographic paradigm which results in her writing a truly European history, rather than a mere addition of national histories. Similarly, the complex interpretation of the interactions between political, social, and economic factors in each of the chapters creates a panoramic view on the European state(s) of the eighteenth century which is an intellectual pleasure to explore for students and experienced scholars alike."
