Contexts of property in Europe : the social embeddedness of property rights in land in historical perspective by Rosa Congost( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this book tap the potential of the historical analysis of social contexts in which property rights are embedded, social relations, power and agency, political institutions, culture, to understand how landed resources are actually appropriated. This exploratory approach seeks both to take advantage of the existing theory of property rights, as it is applied by the institutionalist outlook on economic history, and to go beyond it by explicitly incorporating social processes and factors in the analysis of property institutions. With this common aim in mind, the book covers a wide variety of historical cases throughout space and time, from the late Middle Ages in the Czech Lands and in Tuscany to the very recent decollectivization of the countryside in former Socialist countries

Agrarian change and imperfect property : Emphyteusis in Europe (16th to 19th centuries)( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is situated at the crossroads of two recurring themes in rural history: agrarian contracts and property rights. Emphyteusis is at the heart of agrarian history in that it brings together agricultural history and the nature of social relations in traditional societies. Despite this, many such contracts have been blithely ignored, or unjustly dismissed, either because they are hard to identify, given the many variants that existed, or because, as a form of divided property, they are generally perceived in a negative light. Nevertheless, emphyteusis is to be found everywhere, even in regions which deny its existence, and it is far from being obsolete. Rather, it is flourishing, prospering and long-lived, particularly in urban areas. Emphyteusis has a long history and has played a central role, sometimes misleading, but always crucial, in the process of agricultural development. It has held sway as a substitute when access to property has been impossible, and as a source of conflicts has often revealed the nature of power relations between property owners on the one hand, whether seigneurial or not, and cultivators, short-term and long-term tenants on the other. The different chapters in this volume illuminate these multiple facets and forms of this type of contract and imperfect property rights. Though the focus is on Mediterranean societies, the questions raised have relevance far beyond this specific area"--Back cover

Pierre Vilar : una historia total, una historia en construcción( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La comprensión del pasado, puede ayudarnos a conocer el presente y, por tanto, a comprenderlo mejor? Nuestro mundo global y liberalizado, podemos penetrar a través del conocimiento histórico acumulado y del análisis histórico? La historia, es útil para el pensamiento crítico contemporáneo? Puede enriquecer su perspectiva, frente a un futuro incierto? Podemos pensar históricamente el presente? Pierre Vilar no se limitó a responder afirmativamente estas preguntas, sino que trabajó para aportar pruebas, con paciencia y rigor, lejos del estallido efímero de los media. Quiso una historia-inteligencia, una historia-comprensión, una historia total, en construcción permanente. Pero también una historia-exigencia y una historia-esfuerzo: una historia alejada del conformismo intelectual y de verdades canónicas y eternas. Su obra de historiador y su maestría, forjados a lo largo de una vida de investigación, de reflexión y de transmisión de conocimientos, constituye un legado rico y diverso, aunque haya obtenido mucho más eco en Cataluña, al conjunto de España y el mundo latinoamericano que no en su país, Francia. Realizado a partir de contribuciones presentadas por especialistas de diferentes países, mayoritariamente franceses, este libro quiere remarcar la fecundidad de los trabajos de análisis histórico de Pierre Vilar, e invita a leerlos, y familiarizarse con ellos, a todos aquellos practicantes de la historia, historiadores, ciudadanos y actores del presente, que sienten la necesidad de comprenderlo
