Seriously, enough with the fiscal-military state

I kid (sort of). We have another entry in the European fascination with the intersection between war and money. I suppose it helps that there are groups like Contractor State Group to fund such ventures.

Harding, Richard, Solbes Ferri, Sergio, and Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, eds. The Contractor State and Its Implications, 1659-1815 International Congress, CSG-Contractor State Group, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 16th-18th November 2011. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria: Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 2012.
Having trouble finding a table of contents over here in the USA, but it looks like there’s one chapter on Louis XV’s provisioning.

      Thanks. Funny, I actually found that first link with the fancy format but didn’t bother exploring further.
      As is so often the case, practically all of the chapters deal with the period from the mid-18C onward. Probably due to the source availability.
