McGill Queens University Press, Montreal, 1991. Canadian first edition, hard bound in dj, 6 1/4 x 9 1/4, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xiv, 191 pages, notes, bibliog., index.---------------------------------Henry Heller argues that well before the 1560s, in the midst of the apparent prosperity and tranquillity of the French Renaissance, French society was marked by acute social tensions that regularly exploded in uprisings and rebellions.Sixteenth-century France, as Heller shows, was not as clearly ordered as Roland Mousnier has proposed. Because of aristocratic domination over land and people, this concept of order certainly had meaning for the sixteenth-century elite, but it is not clear that this was also the view of the commoners. Heller maintains that for peasants, craftsmen, and merchants the decline of the French economy started at the beginning rather than the middle of the sixteenth century. This resulted in unrest which spread from town to countryside, culminating in the three great popular movements of the civil wars : the Calvinist Revolt of the 1560s, the Catholic League's challenge to the power of the Monarchy, and the revolts of the 1590s.---------------------------------------------------Heller stresses that the history of sixteenth-century France is one of both resistance and domination. It was often the upper class which took the initiative, directing much of the violence toward the commoners, and many of those involved in the civil wars were fighting for their own economic positions. Iron and Blood helps to clarify the significance of the French Civil Wars by showing them to be rooted in an aristocratic reaction against the earlier social unrest which began among the common people.

Sinopsis: Book by Heller Henry
Críticas: "Novel and provocative ... Heller presents a vast amount of information about popular revolt ... His argument, running contrary to standard texts, should stimulate wide discussion." Frederic Baumgartner, Department of History, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University. "a very refreshing look at the sixteenth century contesting the arbitrary division of the century into a `good' phase and a `bad' phase. At a point when historians are beginning to note the deficiencies in the Annales version of French history, Professor Heller's contribution demonstrates the unity of themes which permeate sixteenth-century society." Daniel Hickey, Department of History, Universite de Moncton.
