Robbins presents a comprehensive history of early modern La Rochelle, one of the largest and most fractious French Protestant towns. Grounded upon a mass of local serial sources unprecedented in scope, this study reassesses the Reformation's urban impact in France, the comportment of French Protestants, the violent nature of French civic politics, and the capacity of the French crown to police effectively a rebel Atlantic port town.
