6 Coy, Jason Philip, Benjamin Marschke, and David Warren Sabean, eds. The Holy Roman Empire, Reconsidered
New York Berghahn Books, 2010 1845457595 / 9781845457594 First Edition Hard Cover As New No Dust Jacket Hard Cover 12mo 7" - 7 
Sterling condition hardcover copy, gift-quality. Tips unbruised, spine and binding tight, pages bright and clear, paste-downs neat and tidy, and not ex-library; neither underlining nor highlighting. Contributions by, among others, the editors, and Alexander Schlaak, Len Scales, Rolf Peter Fuchs, Elizabeth Harding, and Tim Neu. From the rear cover blurb: "The Holy Roman Empire has often been anachronistically assumed to have been defunct long before it was actually dissolved at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The authors of this volume reconsider the significance of the Empire in the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries. Their research reveals the continual importance of the Empire as a stage (and audience) for symbolic performance and communication; as a well utilized problem-solving and conflict-resolving supra-governmental institution; and as an imagined political, religious, and cultural "world" for contemporaries. This volume by leading scholars offers a dramatic reappraisal of politics, religion, and culture and also represents a major revision of the history of the Holy Roman Empire in the early modern period. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
