Based on papers presented at a conference held at the University of Liverpool in 1987 . . . . . . . . . . . . 'This volume of essays (stemming from a conference held at the university of Liverpool in 1987) reflects research carried out in recent years by a group of your British historians whose interest lie mainly in the history of late medieval and early modem France. A theme central to a number of contributions is the growing appreciation of how important popular support is in the effective exercise of power, political and religious. While men can be controlled to a certain extent, by force, the winning of their minds and consent is crucial to the government of a stable society. Concentrating largely, but not exclusively, on France at the time of her war with England, these essays demonstrate how that support was sought using techniques which appealed to the intellects, emotions and other sensibilities of men of the time. Together they constitute a further contribution to the study of mentalities which has been one of preoccupation of much French historical writing n recent times.' -- Dust jacket. . . . . .
