Synopsis

Between the 1930s and the 1950s rural life in Europe underwent profound changes, partly as a result of the Second World War, and partly as a result of changes which had been in progress over many years. This book examines a range of European countries, from Scandinavia to Spain and Ireland to Hungary, during this crucial period, and identifies the common pressures to which they all responded and the features that were unique to individual countries. In particular, it examines the processes of agricultural development over western Europe as a whole, the impact of the war on international trading patterns, the relationships between states and farmers, and the changing identities of rural populations. It presents a bold attempt to write rural history on a European scale, and will be of interest not only to historians and historical geographers, but also to those interested in the historical background to the Common Agricultural Policy of the European Union, to which the changes discussed here provided a dramatic prologue.

Paul Brassley is a Senior Research Fellow in the University of Exeter, and a former chair of the British Agricultural History Society. Yves Segers is Professor of Rural History and Director of the Interfaculty Centre for Agrarian History (ICAG) at the University of Leuven, Belgium. Leen Van Molle is Professor of Social History and chair of ICAG.
