This book provides a comparative analysis of the relationship between the possession of land and the exercise of power in 19th and 20th-century Europe. 12 historians examine this relationship in several regions of France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Great Britain and Ireland. The settings discussed range from peasant communities to impoverished landless labourers and reveal a variety of social climates from relative harmony to bitter and bloody conflict. The 12 contributors are Ralph Gibson, Martin Blinkhorn, Donald Sutherland, Pierre Leveque, Hanna Schissler, Gregory Pedlow, Jonathan Osmond, Eric Evans, K. Theodore Hoppen, Anthony Cardoza and Frank Snowden.
