Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of ancient author names and terms that are mentioned in the book Coercion, Conversion and Counterinsurgency in Louis XIV's France. It contains a list of recent volumes in the book series History of Warfare. In the seventeenth century, the government of France embarked upon an ambitious agenda of centralization with the twin aims of taming the centrifugal forces of religious and provincial particularism, and imposing a pervasive fiscal system capable of supporting the voracious demands of an expanding military establishment. In 1948, Soviet historian Boris Porchnev published a comprehensive study that examined popular uprisings in France from 1623-1648. Written in Russian, Porchnev's seminal work remained in a state of relative obscurity until the publication of a German translation in 1954.
