The Brenner debate : agrarian class structure and economic development in pre-industrial Europe by T. H Aston( Book )

41 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few historical issues have occasioned such discussion since at least the time of Marx as the transition from feudalism to capitalism in Western Europe. The Brenner Debate, which reprints from Past and Present various article in 1976, is a scholarly presentation of a variety of points of view, covering a very wide range in time, place and type of approach. Weighty theoretical responses to Brenner's first formulation followed from the late Sir Michael Postan, John Hatcher, Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie and Guy Bois; more particular contributions came from Patricia Croot, David Parker, Arnost Klìma and Heide Wunder on England, France, Bohemia and Germany; and reflective pieces from R. H. Hilton and the late J. P. Cooper. Completing the volume, and giving it an overall coherence, are Brenner's own comprehensive response to those who had taken part in the debate, and also R. H. Hilton's introduction that aims to bring together the major themes in the collection of essays. The debate has already aroused widespread interest among historians and scholars in allied fields as well as among ordinary readers, and may reasonably be regarded as one of the most important historical debates of prevailing years

Crisis in Europe, 1560-1660 : essays from Past and Present by Eric John Hobsbawm( Book )

61 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the hundred years after 1560 the nations of Europe underwent an economic, political and social crisis, far-flung in both cause and effect. The economy laboured under an outworn feudal structure; political events were precipitated by forms of social unrest and dissatisfaction that, in the main, found their outlet in the religious upheavals witnessed by the period of the Thirty Years' War and the Puritan Revolution. As a result, the system of land and rents, as well as the composition of governments and the laws upholding them, underwent great change. This series of articles was drawn from the noted British historical journal 'Past and Present' to support the thesis that crisis was the keynote of the period." [Back cover]

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The exercise of lordship in England is examined in relation to personal and tenurial dependence, estate management, and changing social and economic conditions. In addition the formation of kingdoms and national identities in early medieval Britain and Ireland and the relationship between lords and peasants in Byzantium are explored. In contributions on medieval education the institutions of late medieval Oxford are reassessed; the provisions made for their archives by medieval corporations and the practical importance of muniments are explained; and material from across western Europe is deployed to show how images were used to convey non-verbal messages to the non-literate."--Jacket
