Jan Lhoták Borough landed estate of Sušice. From borough villages to abolition of corvee and its results (abstract) The aim of this doctoral thesis lies in its contribution to a complex problem of economic development of Czech landowning towns in the post-White Mountain period. The research is focused on a selected problem of town feudalisation, i. e. analysis of the importance as well as extent of their seignorial activities. Czech historiography has dealt with such a topic rather marginally, because towns used to be understood as a strange element in feudal environment, which on the contrary created conditions for social modernisation. Aristocratic (chamber) or church landed estates used to be studied as a matter of priority. Introductory chapter balances current research on the topic of borough landed estates.

From Feudalism to Capitalism - Institutional Analysis of the West
Radošťanová, Iveta ; Mládek, Josef (advisor) ; Štěpánek, Pavel (referee)

Every phase of this wandering to the higher levels and shapes of the civilization is characterized by certain organization of the social ties, what I would like to take a closer look at. I will consider a development in the western countries at the time, when feudal system of the medieval society appeared to be archaistic and deficient, whereat it was replaced by a new social system, which was modern and which was able to stand with transforming needs of the society better than narrow-minded feudalism. I will not enquire the exact historical development, my tendency is to analyse the institutional changes more generally. First I will try to describe general traits of the transition, then I will attend to some concrete countries and their differences. I will talk about France, Spain, the Netherlands and England.
