Description

  • Abstract

    All classes took part in the economic growth of Berlin that was associated with the full development of the function as capital and royal seat in this period. Each of these classes and levels experienced a significant quantitative growth, an increasing internal differentiation and an extension of their function. This investigation should clear up the extent to which this economic growth was associated with upward social mobility. The division of the individual occupations into social large groups resulted according to general historical knowledge about the class and level organization and structure in the late feudal city.
