BLOCH, Marc. Types of social structure in rural French life. Argumentos (Méx.) [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.69, pp.101-107. ISSN 0187-5795.

To begin with, Marc Bloch warns that it is "the peasants that must be spoken of". To speak of the peasant in singular leads to misconception, and in addition means to ignore France's history. Everything is important to Bloch: medieval clearing of land for settlement, village design, the type of soils, the conditions of the terrain; the peasant population, the lords, laborers, rural solidarity. The differences of wealth brings about individualism but with it, also comes the community. And Bloch concludes that it is the peasants' task to adapt to the "new times".
