Neuerscheinung: Urban Elections and Decision Making in Early Modern Europe. Herausgegeben von Rudolf Schlögl

Newcastle: Cambridge Scholars, 2009.

Written by leading historians of urban history and based on a broad foundation of previously unpublished research the volume explores the procedures of decision-making in early modern cities from an international and micrological point of view. It examines the attempts of delegating and stabilising power through elections, asks for the different ways of developing and demonstrating consent or dissent within the cities’ walls—urban revolts included—and offers a new theoretical framework to describe and understand these phenomena adequately.
