Studies On Pre-Capitalist Modes of Production
This collection represents a wide-ranging and important new contribution to the historical debate of how to understand pre-capitalist societies.
In this collection British and Argentinian historians analyze the Asiatic, Germanic, peasant, slave, feudal, and tributary modes of production by exploring historical processes and diverse problems of Marxist theory. The studies treat an array of pre-capitalist social formations, including medieval Iceland and Norway, Byzantium, the Roman Empire, ancient Egypt, medieval León and Castile, and the Castilian later Middle Ages.
