War, diplomacy and the rise of Savoy, 1690-1720 by Christopher Storrs( )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 1,932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book deals with the crucial relationship between war, diplomacy and state formation in early modern Europe by considering the role of the Duchy of Savoy and the rise of this hitherto weak state from French satellite status into one of the regular members of anti-French coalitions of the eighteenth century."--Jacket
The resilience of the Spanish monarchy, 1665-1700 by Christopher Storrs( )

25 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hitherto it has been largely assumed that in the 'Age of Louis XIV' Spain collapsed as a military, naval, and imperial power, and only retained its empire because states which had hitherto opposed Spanish hegemony came to Carlos's aid. Spain's allies did play a role. However, as Christopher Storrs shows, this view seriously underestimates the efforts of Carlos II and his ministers to raise men to fight in Spain's various armies - above all in Flanders, Lombardy, and Catalonia - and to ensure a continued Spanish naval presence in both the Atlantic and the Mediterranean."

The Spanish resurgence, 1713-1748 by Christopher Storrs( )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A major reassessment of Philip V's leadership and what it meant for the modern Spanish state Often dismissed as ineffective, indolent, and dominated by his second wife, Philip V of Spain (1700--1746), the first Bourbon king, was in fact the greatest threat to peace in Europe during his reign. Under his rule, Spain was a dynamic force and expansionist power, especially in the Mediterranean world. Campaigns in Italy and North Africa revitalized Spanish control in the Mediterranean region, and the arrival of the Bourbon dynasty signaled a sharp break from Habsburg attitudes and practices. Challenging long-held understandings of early eighteenth-century Europe and the Atlantic world, Christopher Storrs draws on a rich array of primary documents to trace the political, military, and financial innovations that laid the framework for the modern Spanish state and the coalescence of a national identity. Storrs illuminates the remarkable revival of Spanish power after 1713 and sheds new light on the often underrated king who made Spain's resurgence possible
