Economi Growth and Social Conflict is a story of La Foia de Llombai that embraces the chronological segment from the formation of this feudal space in the 13th century until its dissolution in the 19th century. As the title says, it is a description and a reflection on the process of economic change and the social conflicts that accompanied it in the period of the transition from feudalism to capitalism. The work shows the conditions of a fundamentally Moorish manor in its initial moment and its economic and social logic, as well as the contradictions it had to face after the expulsion of the Islamic minority. The work maintains that the Moorish manor was a system of exploitation and extraction of robust and relatively efficient surplus, in spite of the contradictions inherent to all social formation, but that the system inaugurated after the 1609 was not so much. The Lords of the Marquisate of Llombai, the Dukes of Gandia, could not impose on the Christian re-settlers the previous status and had to give their new vassals more advantageous conditions. That promoted a powerful economic growth that only partially benefited them. The agrarian bourgeoisie emergent of this process soon acquired an acute anti-stately company, from violent confrontations and legal conflicts until the slow erosion of the feudal rent promoted by the opposition to the payment of stately contribution. Thus progressed the slow agony of stately regime, which ended with its disappearance in the 19th century.
