Imperfect Peasant Economy by Gregor Dallas

Book Description

This book shows how a rural household economy of small-holders in one of the least isolated areas of France, the Loire Country, managed to survive the challenges of the nineteenth century. Rather than taking the view that this system was an anachronism doomed to disappear, the author recognises its large adaptive capacity during times of stress. This leads to a critical assessment of the notions of 'industrialisation' and 'modernisation' that will interest economists, anthropologists and social scientists, as well as historians.

1918 by Gregor Dallas 1918, Paperback (June 2002)

On the night of 7 November 1918, French troops at La Capelle heard the rumble of cars, then perceived the vague form of a huge white flag: the Germans were crossing the line to seek peace. But who were these Germans and what exactly did they represent? This book traces the transition from war to peace across Europe.

1815 by Gregor Dallas 1815, Paperback (November 2001)

The seventeen months from April 1814 to August 1815 were an extraordinary period in European history; a period which saw two sieges of Paris, a complete revision of Europe's political frontiers. This title tells the story of these days through the perspectives of three very different European cities.
