This book examines the transformation of the elective principle in Transylvania and the newly created Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in the early 1570s. These countries insisted on their right to 'free elections', despite the threat to public stability, and this served to transform their institutions and constitutions.

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.
