Kennelly, Choice "Provides an excellent comparative perspective for students of rural life and social change everywhere." Carla Rahn Phillips, Colonial Latin American Review "In his fine book, David E. Vassberg discusses the degree and nature of contact early modern Castilian villages had with the outside world...embraces a revisionist view of Castile as a place where people took initiative in making decisions...organizes his book as a survey of various modes of contact between Castilian villages and the outside world." Book Reviews "David E. Vassberg's The Village and the Outside World in Golden Age Castile is a welcome addition to the historiography of early modern Spain...an intriguing and provocative picture of the varied elements that defined and underlay village life.
