    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Until late in the eighteenth century, the peasantry of the German states had been dismissed contemptuously by the aristocracy and middle classes as brutish and virtually subhuman.

  • Estimating Economic Capacityby Richard E. Gift

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Noting the variety of methods by which the concept of economic capacity is measured and the different ways that the concept is defined, Richard E.

Gift's method is to show the common... more...
