    Laments over peasant suffering as expressed in the literature might have a stylized quality, but this book shows how they were appropriated and shaped by peasants themselves, especially in the large-scale rebellions that characterized the late Middle Ages.   I used this book as a source for statistics on the proportion of land owned by the peasant population of Egyptm as well as the health problems often suffered by them. That is all I can recommend the book for, as all else if presented in an overwhelmingly Orientalist light/5(1).
