About this item

Croot challenges the basic premise that small farmers failed to contribute to the productivity and commercialization of the early modern economy. She examines the small landholders and cultivators of some parishes in the Somerset Levels, looks at their mixed farm production and their attitudes, and tries to show how different was their experience from that of the small "peasant" farmers of so many general histories. The emergence of large capitalist farms is an important development in increasing production by improving under-producing or marginal land that needed expensive treatments, and by improving labor productivity, she says, but these developments were added to the production of existing cultivators rather than replacing them.
