Item description for Town, Country, And Regions In Reformation Germany (Studies in Medieval and Reformation Thought) (Studies in Medieval and Reformation Traditions) by Tom Scott...
This collection of essays covers relations between town and country, regional economic systems, and historical regional studies in late medieval and early modern Germany, in particular how these bear upon social and religious change in the age of the Reformation. Starting from case-studies of South-West Germany, Switzerland and Alsace, the essays broaden out to consider the formation of economic landscapes, the development of urban territories, and the survival of forms of serfdom throughout Germany as a whole. While issues of economic and social structure take pride of place, they are accompanied by analysis of regional mentalities and cultural identities as well. With an Introduction by Tom Brady.
Readership: Scholars and Students of the Reformation, of regional historical studies, economic history, and geography of late-medieval and early-modern Europe.

Great for studies in economic and social relations Apr 5, 2006
This is a great book for anyone interested in the Reformation who wants to know more about relations between different German regions and areas. Scott provides very compelling arguments and case studies on economic landscapes and town country relations during the time of the reformation (and before) in Germany. His book is split into three parts: Part I is "Town and Country between Reform and Revolt" which goes over the German Peasants' War, town-country relations, and other social aspects during that time. Part II is "Economic Landscapes" which goes over the economic changes and landscapes in Germany from 1350-1600 and beyond. Part III is titled "Regions and Local Identities" which goes over serfdom in different areas of Germany, economic bridges between different regions and community and liberty in Switzerland (the German speaking part). The breadth of knowledge the author has in his subject is truly amazing and his insight in invaluable. The only bad thing about this is the price. YIKES!!! Good thing for me my university library has a copy because the price is way out of my range.
