Drawing on the municipal archives of eleven French provincial towns as well as other related sources, this book explores the links between local and national politics during the Wars of Religion of the later sixteenth century. In particular the study focuses on the efforts of the Duc de Guise to control the governments of these towns, in the interests of his family, and later, of the Catholic League, of which he was the head.
