Journal of Agrarian Change

This journal, published by Wiley, examines the social relations and dynamics of production, property and power in agrarian formations and their processes of change, both historical and contemporary. Usually, they do not have many medieval articles, but in their latest issue - Volume 9, Issue 1 (January 2009) they are entirely devoted to the topic of Aristocrats, Peasants and the Transformation of Rural Society, c.400–800. Articles include:
