Diplomático, primer secretario en la embajada francesa en Madrid desde 1777 y, posteriormente, embajador de la Francia revolucionaria entre 1791 y 1793, Jean-François Bourgoing llegó a ser un buen conocedor de la política española, lo que le permitió negociar en 1975 la Paz de Basilea, que ponía término a la guerra hispano-francesa de la Convención. Su excelente información sobre el país, y su gran capacidad de análisis y de observación, le permitieron redactar el Tableau de l'Espagne Moderne, una de las obras más incisivas y reveladoras de la compleja realidad de la España y de su régimen a fines del Setecientos, en vísperas de su crisis definitiva. A través de sus múltiples viajes por la península y la visión política que demostró al ocupar un privilegiado puesto diplomático, Bourgoing se revela como un profundo conocedor de las cosas de este país y el Tableau se puede considerar como una de las narraciones más interesantes dejadas por un viajero foráneo por la España de finales del siglo XVIII. Su agudeza a la hora de comprender el pasado y su capacidad para analizar el presente que le toca vivir por estas tierras, permite a Bourgoing pergeñar algunas recetas que, desde su punto de vista político francés y contrario a los intereses británicos, podrían ayudar a España a salir del atraso secular en el que se encontraba inmersa. Prohibida por la Inquisición, fue traducida a la mayoría de las lenguas europeas, con lo que adquirió justa fama. La única traducción al castellano, realizada en los años cuarenta, era deficiente e incompleta, por lo que la que hoy se publica viene a cubrir una carencia llamativa de nuestra bibliografía histórica

L'Etat Actuel De L'Espagne (September 1779): A French Diplomat's Report to His Government About the Social, Economic, and Political Situation and Military Capability of Spain and Its Empire in 1779 by Jean-François Bourgoing( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in Undetermined and French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book is a report on Spain written in Madrid by the French diplomat Jean-Francois de Bourgoing when France was becoming increasingly involved in the American Revolution. At that time the French were pressing the Spaniards to join them. Bourgoing first describes Spanish society on religiosity, the Church and the Inquisition. His perspective is that of a disciple of Voltaire. His description of the various governmental bodies, the economy and foreign trade, especially with Spain's vast colonial empire including the Indies, was designed to be practical for French policy makers.
