Latifundium documents the history of the aristocratic Barracco family, together with its estate and employees, in nineteenth-century Italy.Marta Petrusewicz's study shows the Barracco estate's transformation from a feudal system to a capitalistic one. The author also demonstrates that a market economy in south Italy existed before the unification of the Italian state, and she thereby disproves the "dependency theory" held by some Italian economists.Not merely a study of one family and their lands, Latifundium broadly sketches a picture of south Italian social history, political life, agricultural practices, and industrial struggles in the nineteenth century.
