520    "The Limits of Rural Capitalism" is an important study of 
       the social and economic development of the Municipality of
       Montcalm, a largely French-Canadian community in southern 
       Manitoba. It challenges the view in prairie historiography
       that agriculture had commercialized before the west was 
       opened to settlement, and that ethnic communities alone 
       resisted the market's potential. Using a novel combination
       of demographic, financial, and legal evidence, Sylvester 
       shows that both Ontario and Quebec migrants came west 
       within family networks, and that neither economic 
       individualism nor ethnic clustering overshadowed the 
       importance of family strategies. In an environment where 
       landed proprietorship was the norm, the demands of parents
       on the unpaid labour of their children constrained the 
       growth of labour markets, and concerns for farm succession
       limited the accumulation of wealth. In the shadow of an 
       industrializing and urbanizing world, these people, who 
       came mainly from the District of Montreal and eastern 
       Ontario, sometimes via New England, raised large families,
       drew largely on the unpaid labour of kin, owned their own 
       farms, limited financial entanglements with outsiders, and
       established multiple heirs. While household autonomy 
       diminished over time, the limits of rural capitalism 
       persisted.
