9781843838906: The Decline of Serfdom in Late Medieval England

Scholars from various disciplines have long debated why western Europe in general, and England in particular, led the transition from feudalism to capitalism. The decline of serfdom between c.1300 and c.1500 in England is central to this "Transition Debate", because it transformed the lives of ordinary people and opened up the markets in land and labour. Yet, despite its historical importance, there has been no major survey or reassessment of decline of serfdom for decades. Consequently, the debate over its causes, and its legacy to early modern England, remains unresolved. This dazzling study provides an accessible and up-to-date survey of the decline of serfdom in England, applying a new methodology for establishing both its chronology and causes to thousands of court rolls from 38 manors located across the south Midlands and East Anglia. It presents a ground-breaking reassessment, challenging many of the traditional interpretations of the economy and society of late-medieval England, and, indeed, of the very nature of serfdom itself. Mark Bailey is High Master of St Paul's School, and Professor of Later Medieval History at the University of East Anglia. He has published extensively on the economic and social history of England between c.1200 and c.1500, including Medieval Suffolk (2007).

Review:

Original, thoroughly data-based, and likely to set the terms of conversation for some time. SEHEPUNKTE.DE Anyone looking for a reliable survey of recent work on late medieval agrarian history will find this part of the book well worth reading. The book's organizing principles are admirably clear from beginning to end and the writing is direct and lucid. THE MEDIEVAL REVIEW Bailey's arguments are carefully constructed and powerfully put, and are bound to spark lively debate within the academic community. This makes his book one of the most important contributions to late medieval historiography for many years. SUFFOLK INSTITUTE OF ARCHAEOLOGY AND HISTORY Historians of late medieval England have been waiting for a comprehensive history such as this. . . . Bailey challenges existing views on the timing and course of serfdom's decline, linking the economic and personal transformations in the later medieval period to trends found in recent works on the early modern economy.
