Usually histories are about kings and wars. Braudel's series of books is about land, people, and technology, commerce, transportation et. .

Usually histories are about kings and wars.the actual things that affected everyday life,, and also how things changed. Lots of what some would call "Trivia" but it goes into more details and how these observations fit into a larger picture. It should be on everyone's bookshelf. I own two of the three voumes in my library, but am happy I now can read it on my iPad.

III: The Perspective of the World.

The history is fascinating and made even more interesting by period prints and drawings.

This final volume of Braudel was often both enthralling and crushing but not ultimately as satisfying as the first, The Structures of Everyday Life.

Harper & Row, 26 sept. The work is a wonderful example of the Annales School of historiography. A student of Lucien Febvre (1878-1956), Fernand Braudel (1902-1985) stresses long-term social, geographic and environmental. Leer reseña completa. Volume 3. Dentro del libro.

Assuming one already knows the history of this era (which one probably doesn't, but which one can generally bluff through as one goes along), discusses the mechanics of day-to-day.

THE STRUCTURES O F EVERYDAY LIFE The Limits o f the Possible Fernand Braudel has always insisted on the necessity of world history and has been rewarded with a worldwide reputation.

The concluding volume of the trilogy charts the growth of the world economy from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century concentrating on the human activity that underlies the business of life - the bustle of the market, the great manipulators of capital, the labour of the slave, the peasant and factory workers, the fashions of the rich and the rise of the great financial centres of Genoa, Venice, Amsterdam and London.

I'm just beginning the second volume of this three-volume work -- the material and economic fundamentals of peoples of the world; the limits of the possible; population and economy through these four centuries. Who knew these things could be so engrossing? It's certainly not names, dates, battles, empires and kings. It's about the way people lived, their food, clothing, houses, health, their constant work, lifeways

Braudel covers the world, as far as extremely wide reading in his field can cover it: after all, not much is known of China, Russia and many other areas between the 15th and 18th centuries. These are the centuries that mark the long, slow, inevitable movement from changeless tradition, the "ancien regime", through growth of towns, cities, and on to our capitalistic, business-oriented, present modern world-market..The author shows how population demographics drive change, and how it came about that western Europe was moved forward in growth and innovation.

Civilization and Capitalism Vol.1 : Sets the foundations of the Fernand Braudel three stage model:

First Stage-V.1 :The material civilization of every day life. A lively description of material every day life between 15th-18th century. It's mind blowing and It's like being in a time capsule. This first volumne sets the stage and the foundations of Braudel's three stage model:

1st stage: The structure of every day life (the material life)
2nd stage: The emergence of capitalism
3rd stage: The upper layer of social structures that control and manipulate the 2nd and the 1st stage by creating intentionally (or not) "zones of turbulence" in order to extract social and material benefits and their class reproduction.

Interesting book, but style is old school. Very interesting material, but the style is not very engaging for the modern reader. Too much focus on individual sources and anecdotes, and not nearly enough on trends. Also doesn't incorporate interdisciplinary perspectives.

This is the third volume of this set and I haven't quite gotten there yet. The quality of the paper, print, and binding is first class.

The book is erudite and stimulating. It centers on Europe but does have a global scope. Some of the language is a bit antiquated--the author uses words such as "undeveloped" and "backward" to describe nomadic cultures, for example. But considering that the French original was first published in the 1960s, it is understandable.

The copy I received has too many highlights & writing on it though. I understand that it's a used a copy, but I wish the seller made it clear in the description.
