This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book explains the forms of popular protest before the Black Death in later Medieval Europe. It documents the best-known revolt in France before the French Revolution, the Jacquerie, which spread from the Beauvaisis as far east as Bar on France's frontier with the Holy Roman Empire but which lasted a mere two weeks, 28 May to 10 June 1358. The book focuses on the best known of the urban revolts of the fourteenth century, the Revolt of the Ciompi, which set off with a constitutional conflict in June 1378, and whose regime in alliance with minor-guild artisans lasted until mid-January 1382. It includes documents of a less studied cluster of revolts in the cities and countryside of Languedoc that preceded the cluster of northern France.
