Summary
"This book examines the exercise of royal power over colonial Louisiana in the eighteenth century, revealing the abuses that the French government could exert on its people against their will, ultimately establishing an overlooked implicit connection between histories of settler colonialism in the Americas and the fate of absolutism in Europe. Although the Louisiana colony is not traditionally considered a site of revolution, its mismanagement inspired increasing distrust and revolutionary sentiments against the ancien regime until its collapse. Afterward, the threat of revolution in the colony itself played a role in Spanish and French strategies in the Americas that resulted in the end of Napoleon's claims to this part of North America"-- Provided by publisher.
