Most widely held works by Jacob Soll
Publishing the Prince : history, reading, & the birth of political criticism by Jacob Soll( )

25 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 1,918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Revising the orthodox schema of the public sphere in which political authority shifted away from the crown with the rise of bourgeois civil society in the eighteenth century, Soll uses the example of Amelot to show that the very sphere of political criticism and the terms of public debate were absolutist creations, which were in turn appropriated by critics of the crown."--Jacket
The information master : Jean-Baptiste Colbert's secret state intelligence system by Jacob Soll( )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean-Baptiste Colbert saw governance of the state not as the inherent ability of the king, but as a form of mechanical mastery of subjects such as medieval legal history, physics, navigation, and the price lists of nails, sails, and gunpowder. In The Information Master, Jacob Soll shows how the legacy of Colbert's encyclopedic tradition lies at the very center of the rise of the modern state. This innovative book argues that Colbert's practice of collecting knowledge originated in Renaissance Italy, where merchants recognized the power to be gained from merging scholarship and trade. By connecting historical literatures -- archives, libraries, merchant techniques, and humanist pedagogy -- that have usually remained separate, Soll has created an imaginative and refreshing work."--Jacket
