1995 0-7734-9118-X
Using the proc├Ęs-verbal, or proceedings of their national assemblies, this study traces the political evolution of the Huguenots in the first two decades of the seventeenth century. It determines why a segment of the Huguenot population became so alienated from French society that it ultimately chose to challenge the crown in a war that ended Huguenot politics. ". . . the book provides a highly detailed narrative of their organization, operation, and the political issues they faced. A number of interesting insights emerge . . . Appendixes list deputies-general, rotating leaders of the assembly of La Rochelle (1621-22), and delegates attending each assembly. Recommended for specialists." - Choice
