1 Gregor Dallas
The Imperfect Peasant Economy: The Loire Country, 1800-1914
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 1982; 0521240603 / 9780521240604; First Edition; Hard Cover; As New; 
This book shows how a rural household economy of small-holders in one of the least isolated areas of France, the Loire Country, managed to survive the challenges of the nineteenth century. Rather than taking the view that this system was an anachronism doomed to disappear, the author recognises its large adaptive capacity during times of stress. This leads to a critical assessment of the notions of ‘industrialisation’ and ‘modernisation’ that will interest economists, anthropologists and social scientists, as well as historians. Contents List of figures and tables; Preface; Part I. Introduction: 1. Aims and scope; 2. The Loire Country: the land and its settlements; 3. ‘The theory of peasant economy’; Part II. Space: 4.
