This classic study of the life of the nobility at the royal court of France, especially under Louis XIV, has long been out of print. Here Elias shows how courtiers - and finally even the king himself - were entrapped in web of etiquette and ceremony, how their expenses, even down to details of their houses and household, were dictated by their rank rather than their income.
