Overview

A commercialising economy focuses upon a formative period in the development of the English economy. Between the making of Domesday Book and the end of the thirteenth century far-reaching changes occurred in the scale and organisation of economic activity. The volume of trade expanded and involved a greater proportion of both the population and goods produced. New financial and commercial institutions were created, more business-like attitudes became prevalent, and the market came increasingly to determine what was produced. In short economic life became more commercialised. This book examines the course and the consequences of these changes. It considers the impact of commercialisation upon different commodities and different producers and the effect of that process upon traditional relationships between landlords and tenants. More fundamentally, it questions whether people were better off in 1300 than in 1086 and whether or not there was real economic growth over this period. The contributors to this volume employ a range of sources and approaches to bring fresh light upon these important questions and open up a major field of historical debate. Amongst other innovations, estimates of English national income in the Middle Ages are here attempted for the first time.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Seven essays illuminate the economic changes in England between the Domesday Book and about the end of the 13th century. They focus on how the commercial market grew to engulf a greater proportion of people and goods, and how that change affected the production and distribution of goods, and relations between landlords and tenants and among other social groups. The essays are revised from presentations at a symposium in Leicester, England, in July 1992. Distributed in the US by St. Martin's Press. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
