Political Academy in Paris, 1724 - 1731
The Entresol and Its Members
The Entresol was a meeting of minds between older men who wished to keep in touch with current events, and younger men on their way up, who were eager to prove their suitability for high office in the French governing élite. Members came to meetings because they enjoyed talking about politics, especially foreign affais, and while the Entresol remained in favour, to be a member was a recommendation to those in government.
In this book, the first to be published on the Entresol, Nick Childs examines the political thought and social background of the academy’s members, and the reason why their meetings were eventually banned.
