    History of modern Europe. Hobsbawm divides the ancient historians into two distinct categories in his book; The Age of Empire. He says that quite a number of historians who lived during the 19 th century can be classified into two classes while excluding the purely pieces of literature written by them. Covering a wide area of early modern Europe, from Portugal to Poland and from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean, Bellavitis presents an overview of the economic rights of women – property, inheritance, management of their wealth, access to the guilds, access to education – and assesses the evolution of female work in different urban contexts.

While the discussion concentrated on three major themes, it was perhaps in that sense unfortunately a bit unbalanced.

We have to select what is the most important at each particul. Increasingly deprived of their old skills and autonomy in the iron cage of modernity, working class men tried to secure their dignity by embodying it.

The British working class, on the other hand, was not notable in Europe for prosperity, and early modern British travellers often remarked on the high standard of living of the farmworkers and artisans of the Netherlands, though the peasantry in other countries such as France were remarked on as poorer than their English equivalents.
