The General Crisis of the Seventeenth Century

by

The General Crisis of the Seventeenth Century Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A wide-ranging debate in historical circles since 1975 has concerned the theory that, throughout Europe the 17th century was a period of crisis so pervasive, significant and intense that it could be labelled a "General Crisis". This volume takes the debate on to the perspectives of 1996. The editors have collected together 10 essays concerning the social, economic and political crises which affected not only Europe but also Asia in the mid-17th century. The text seeks to give a fresh understanding of the period from the current research.

Book News Annotation:

A collection of essays continuing the debate in historical circles on the theory that, throughout Europe, the 17th century saw a period of crisis so pervasive and intense that it could be labeled a "general crisis." This edition, revised since the first was published in 1978, takes the still undecided debate up to the present day, with a new introduction, several updated essays, and four new chapters on the social, economic, and political crises that affected not only Europe but also Asia during the mid-17th century. Complementary to the publisher's 1965 title, Crisis in Europe, 1560-1660.
