Title: The Marital Economy in Scandinavia and Britain, 1400-1900 (Women and Gender in the Early Modern World)
Description: Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 2005. First Edition, Softcover. Fine Condition. 9780754637820 288 Pages. Edges are a little marked. Marriage today is our prime social and legal institution. Historically, it was also the principal economic institution. This collection of essays offers a wealth of original research into the economic, social and legal history of the marital partnership in northern Europe over a 500-year period. Erickson's introduction explores the concept of the marital economy and sketches the legal and economic background across the region. Chapters by Agren, Gudrun Andresson, Agnes Arnorsdottir, Inger Dubeck, Elizabeth Ewan, Rosemarie Fiebranz, Catherine Frances, Hanne Johansen, Ann-Catrin Ostman, Anu Pylkkanen, Hilde Sandvik and Jane Whittle, are organized according to the three economic stages of the marital life-cycle: forming the partnership; managing the partnership; and dissolving the partnership. In conclusion, Michael Roberts explores how the historical development of modern economic theory has removed marriage from its central position at the heart of the economy.

It challenges assumptions about the distinctiveness of individual nations and will change the way historians and economists view the marriage partnership.' Tim Stretton, Associate Professor of History, Saint Mary's University, Nova Scotia 'The research is original and represents a significant contribution to our understanding of the economic, social and legal history of marital partnerships in northern Europe.'
