(POLITICAL IDEAS IN FRANCE DURING THE 18TH CENTURY) In this volume, published prior to See's book on the 17th century, the author outlines French political thought from Montesquieu to Condorcet. He stresses the British influence and gives an admirable summary -of the political philosophy of Voltaire, Rousseau, Diderot and others. However much has been written on this fertile period of French political thought since 1920, this book has lost none of its vitality. French Text
