Summary The Peasantries of Europe is a comparative examination of the types of peasant economies and societies throughout Europe from the late medieval agrarian crisis to the dawn of industrialization. Unlike traditional studies, which have taken a sociological approach, this volume looks at how European peasants have evolved through history as a social group and emphasizes the diversities of peasant society both between and within the regions of Europe examined -- from France to the Ottoman lands and from Iberia to Scandinavia and Russia.
