Almost five centuries after Martin Luther prepared his ninety-five theses against indulgences historians are still trying to make sense of the ‘ long drawn-out process of complex historical interrelations’1that we, for the sake of convenience, label the reformation. Three of the books under review here-by Cameron, Scott and Stayer-make valuable contributions to this ongoing endeavour. The fourth, by Robisheaux, incorporates religious change in a supporting role to wider demographic, social and economic changes affecting an area of south-western Germany. All four books deepen our understanding of the sixteenth century: Euan Cameron's European reformation and Thomas Robisheaux's Rural society and the search for order are particularly important additions to the reformation and German social history canons respectively. © 1995, Cambridge University Press.
