The undevelopment of capitalism : sectors and markets in fifteenth-century Tuscany by Rebecca Jean Emigh( )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The results of a decade-long research study by the author, in The Undevelopment of Capitalism Rebecca Jean Emigh argues that the expansion of the Florentine economic market in the fifteenth century helped to undo the development of markets of other economies, especially the rural economy of Tuscany, paradoxically slowing down the economic development of northern Italy overall. This ""undeveloping"" process, as Emigh calls it, produced an advanced economy at the time of the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance, but created the conditions whereby much of this area of Europe delaye

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Changes in Censuses from Imperialist to Welfare States, the second of two volumes, uses historical and comparative methods to analyze censuses or census-like information in the United Kingdom, the United States, and Italy, starting in England over one-thousand years ago. The authors argue that censuses arose from interactions between bureaucracies and social interests, and that censuses constituted public, official knowledge not where they were insulated from social pressures, but rather where there was intense social and political interaction around them"--
Antecedents of censuses from medieval to nation states : how societies and states count by Rebecca Jean Emigh( )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Antecedents of Censuses From Medieval to Nation States, the first of two volumes, examines the influence of social formations on censuses from the medieval period through current times. The authors argue that relative influence of states and societies is probably not linear, but depends on the actual historical configuration of the states and societies, as well as the type of population information being collected. They show how information gathering is an outcome of the interaction between states and social forces, and how social resistance to censuses has frequently circumvented their planning, prevented their implementation, and influenced their accuracy"--

The Undevelopment of Capitalism : Sectors and Markets in Fifteenth Century Tuscany. Politics, History, and Social Change by Rebecca Jean Emigh( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In The Undevelopment of Capitalism, Rebecca Jean Emigh argues that the expansion of the Florentine economic market in the 15th century helped to undo the development of markets of in rural Tuscany, leading to the overall contraction of the urban and rural economy. As this highly developed urban market penetrated rural regions, it actually erased rural market institutions that rural inhabitants had used to organize agricultural production and family life. Thus, an advanced economy at the time of the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance "undeveloped" over time. The economic development of this region in Italy was delayed as it failed to keep pace with the rest of Europe. Using a negative case methodology to show how urban and rural markets change, Emigh employs methods of historical sociology and sectoral theories to examine how markets can prosper and suffer at the same time. She shows how sectoral relations are crucial to transitions to capitalism and how capitalist development can also contract markets
