Cerman revises the traditional view of 'serfdom' by providing an up-to-date survey of social and economic conditions in early modern Eastern Europe. Incorporating the latest research, Cerman identifies the role of villagers actively shaping rural societies and reassesses their legal, social and economic status, as well as rural power relations.
