    1. Great example of histoire totale in the tradition of the Annales school of history Demography at its most thorough and convincing Ladurie belabors points, but it s in the aim of achieving totality and thoroughness The analysis is intermixed with his conception of peasant mentality and their day to day experience It s dense, but if you want an idea of the effects of population or the lives of French peasants in Languedoc during the 16th century, I can t imagine a better source.


    2. Les Paysans de Languedoc est un des grands chefs oeuvres de l ecole des annales bourrees de statistiques et des tableaux Il reussit surtout parce qu il suit rigoreusement la formule de Michelet c est a dire parce qu il nous donne un image remarquable du vecu d autrefois d un peuple.


    3. It takes a historian of Le Roy Ladurie s genius to make this remote subject not only readable, but enormously entertaining and enlightening The study is a classic one of the few which rightly deserves that label.
