Graeme Murdock, European History Quarterly This excellent study illuminates the political culture of early modern elective monarchies through the examples of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and Transylvanian principality. ... Ros,u has consulted a very impressive range of archival and printed sources in a variety of languages to provide a clear and authoritative account of complex terrain that will be unfamiliar to many readers.
Richard Butterwick-Pawlikowski, University College London, School of Slavonic and East European Studies, Slavic Review's Rosu is to be congratulated, not least for having deepened our understanding of this formidable ruler and the conditions in which he operated.
Felicia Rosu is a lecturer in history at Leiden University, where she teaches courses on historiography and early modern European politics, religion, and slavery. Her research so far has focused on the political culture and constitutional history of East Central Europe in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and the frontier zone between Europe and the Ottoman Empire.
