Spanish Agriculture by James Simpson
Book DescriptionSpanish Agriculture: The Long Siesta, 1765-1965, first published in 1996, is a major study in English of Spanish agrarian history. James Simpson examines how traditional agriculture responded to population growth and the integration of commodity markets, emphasising both Spain's regional variations and its context in Europe. Using statistical data as well as his wide knowledge of the recent secondary literature, Simpson argues that decisive changes in farming techniques only occurred at the start of this century. He rejects arguments that slow growth can be explained by poor resources or inefficient farmers. Indeed, farmers were quick to change when they had market opportunities, but development was interrupted by the Spanish Civil War and subsequent short-sighted government policies, only resuming in the 1950s. This comprehensive study will be of relevance to students and scholars of historical geography and agrarian history, as well as economic history.

Books By Author James Simpson
Cultural Reformations, Paperback (December 2016)
The deepest periodic division in English literary history has been between the Medieval and the Early Modern. Cultural Reformations, part of the Oxford Twenty-First Century Approaches to Literature series, initiates discussion on many fronts in which both periods look different in dialogue with each other.
Uncommon Sense, Paperback (October 2016)
When James Simpson talks about uncommon sense, as opposed to common sense, he has in mind something like gumption, a quality he much admires. With his trademark mix of laugh-out-loud humour and thoughtful musings on things that matter, this is classic Simpson.
Reynard the Fox, Hardback (April 2015)View all books by James Simpson
Like Seamus Heaney's Beowulf, this new translation of a classic promises to revive one of the greatest characters of medieval literature.
