Von der Montanregion zur Sozialregion.
Zur gesellschaftsgeschichtlichen Dimension von ,,Region" in der Montanwirtschaft der Frühen Neuzeit
Abstract:The conception "mining region" underlines the dominance of mining activities in an area. Within the last years new research on the lower and upper Harz and the Vosges in Early Modern Time have highlightend mutual influences and reciprocal impacts in politics, economy, law, culture, religion and society as well as a process of aggregation of structures and conflicts. Different economic interests of mining and agrarian communities effected a new specific area, the social region. As the economic impact normally changes social impacts and outlast an economic period, analysing and understanding an economic region as a social region in respect to the historical character we may find concepts of managing economic and social problems of today.
