The purpose of this review is to take stock as the historiography of rural France pauses for breath following the headlong expansion of the post-Second World War decades.It examines some of the themes that continue to exert an attraction on scholars,and also some of the most recent attempts to challenge and reformulate the research agendas inherited from the Annales historians.The works discussed below raise questions concerning growth and stagnation in the rural economy,the basic characteristics of the rural community,and the role of quantification in rural history.
