Kings and philosophers, 1689-1789 by Leonard Krieger( Book )

31 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in English and held by 1,360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The one hundred years that preceded the French Revolution witnessed the rise of kings to unmatched power and influence in European affairs. These years also encompassed the birth, maturation and waning of the Enlightenment. The author shows how the monarchical tradition and the new intellectual developments were reflected in the latter half of the period during the rule of "philosopher kings", the enlightened absolutists. He analyzes too the origins of a movement toward representative government and the stirrings of political and social revolt that would bring the period to an abrupt end

Ideas and events : professing history by Leonard Krieger( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leonard Krieger has long been revered as a contemporary master historian. With an eye toward placing his critical achievements before an expanded readership, he helped compile this core collection of his most important essays. Together these essays bring under single cover the key themes and ideas of his life's work to serve as a handbook for intellectual history and historians of every stripe. This book reflects Krieger's conviction that the value of intellectual history is as a source of orientation in a world of information overload. In Krieger's hands, intellectual history has stressed "thinking-through" the relations between ideas and events rather than the compilation and recapitulation of mere facts and historical categories. The essays in this collection cover a range of topics, including history of ideas, intellectual history, early modern political history, German political history, Hegel, Marx, and more. Many of these essays are already classics of historical scholarship. With the demise of the Soviet Union and state-sponsored Marxism, and with the reunification of Germany, Krieger's history takes on new relevance and a renewed importance. With a splendid introduction by Michael Ermarth, and an extensive bibliography of Krieger's most important books and essays, this is a "must read" for every serious student of modern history
