In Resistance, Representation, and Community, Peter Blickle gathers a wealth of scholarly expertise for a Pan-European perspective on the social history of state-formation. Tracing the origins of the modern state to medieval political structures, the contributors explore the influence of the people and their communal organizations--ranging from rural parish meeting to powerful city council-- on the continuing development of an evolving Europe.
