Der Band umfasst Überblicke und Fallstudien zur Geschichte ländlicher Gemeingüter. In vergleichender Perspektive zieht er eine problemorientierte Zwischenbilanz dieses expandierenden Forschungszweigs. Ländliche Gemeingüter sind Institutionen, in denen die Nutzung natürlicher Ressourcen (Wälder, Weiden, Gewässer usw.) von sozialen Kollektiven organisiert wird. Seit den Agrarreformen des 18. und 19. Jahrhunderts durchliefen diese Institutionen unterschiedliche Entwicklungen, die von ihrer Auflösung bis zur Integration in (post-)industrielle Wirtschafts- und Verfassungsstrukturen reichen. Die historische Forschung zu ländlichen Gemeingütern hat das Augenmerk jüngst von den Auflösungsprozessen auf die institutionellen Faktoren ihrer Langlebigkeit gelenkt. Der deutsch- und englischsprachige Band zieht anhand exemplarischer Fallanalysen und problemorientierter Resümees eine Zwischenbilanz der neueren Forschung. Der geographische Schwerpunkt liegt auf europäischen Regionen in vergleichender Perspektive, der zeitliche Rahmen erstreckt sich vom Spätmittelalter bis ins 21. Jahrhundert.

Viewed mainly as the growth of manufacturing sector as opposed to agriculture and the increased use of inanimate sources of power in the production of goods and services, rural industrialization offers the greatest scope for absorbing the existing and growing labour force outside the field of agriculture. However, rural industrial scene continues to be characterised by the concentration of labour force in agriculture, predominance of traditional crafts, low levels of technology, hereditary mode of production, poor productivity and returns and low labour efficiency and utilisation. Besides glorification of traditional crafts and self-employment, caste-industry nexus, and above all policy bias in favour of agriculture as against industry and large and medium capital-intensive industries as against small village and cottage industries also worked as strong impediments to the development of rural crafts. Drawing from the nationwide experiences, this book examines the problems of the growth and modernisation of rural industries from socio-economic perspectives and probes into the organisational and technology system underlying their production structure with all its implications an ramifications. The reversal of the policy favouring large modern industry sector and the spread of tiny small industries throughout the country with full package of organisational, technical, financial and marketing support in adequate measure have been strongly advocated. In addition, the integration of the development of rural industries with the overall programme of industrialisation was emphasized.
