Freedom's Price : Serfdom, Subjection, & Reform in Prussia 1648 - 1848
Eddie, S. A. [ Sean ]

Oxford Oxford University Press 2013 First edition Octavo (standard size). Slight wear to edges and corners of boards and dust jacket. 356 p. w/ maps, tables, footnotes, bibliography, index, and list of currency, weights, and measures. A detailed study of two events in both a local and wider context, one called the Second Serfdom in 1650 and the later enfrachisment of 1807-21, ending serfdom. Eddie argues that both saw the peasants in power and gaining much from the nobles' weaknesses at those times. Very good Hardcover (Item ID: 17514)
