Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new study provides an up-to-date survey of social and economic developments in early modern Eastern European rural societies. Markus Cerman revises the traditional images of mighty lords and poor, powerless 'serf peasants', discussing the theories which led to the assumption that serfdom existed throughout the region.

Cerman contrasts the interpretation of a long-term backwardness with a fresh view of the legal, social and economic status of villagers, their living standards and their role in actively shaping rural communities. Featuring helpful tables, a glossary and a comprehensive bibliography, this is a stimulating reassessment for anyone studying this period and often neglected topic in European history.

About the Author

MARKUS CERMAN is Associate Professor of Economic and Social History at the University of Vienna, Austria. His previous publications include studies on European proto-industrialization and the development of the agrarian institutions in late medieval and early modern Europe in a comparative perspective.
