From the Publisher"the implications of Warde's conclusions for how we think about peasant economic activity, for the nature of rhetoric emplyed in disputes within the village commune, and for the interaction of the center and localities in the formation of the early modern territorial state in Europe are ample rewards for the perseverance of the nonspecialist reader." - Geoffrey Dipple, Augustana College
"...this book represents an important effort to re-evaluate the relationship between human beings and their material environment." -Christopher W. Close, H-German
"...impressively researched..." -Christopher W. Close, H-German
"...well thought out piece of research based on the vast literature on the Black Forest and the Duchy of Wurttemberg, and on a thorough investigation of manuscript sources housed in Stuttgart and local record offices."
Mauro Ambrosoli, American Historical Review
