The first three Parts of this volume have dealt, in turn, with the State, the National Economy, and Social Conflicts. Their emphasis has been on internal conditions and events, and the attitudes of Frenchmen, individually or in groups, to these conditions and events. Even so, external relations, whether in religious, military, or economic matters, have been found to have constant relevance to internal affairs, and vice versa. Because France, throughout this period, rated as one of the major powers of Europe, and become one of the world’s largest colonial powers, it would be possible to devote at least as much space to external as to internal developments. This will not be attempted in this final Part.
