The Thirty Years' War proved to be surprisingly stable. Based on a microstudy of the district of Neumarkt in the Upper Palatinate, Johannes Kraus analyzes concrete administrative practices to identify the motives that moved subjects to cooperate with princely officers in coping with the war. In the field of tax collection, the persecution and prevention of military delinquency, and Catholic confessionalization, he works out how routines and traditions, but also specific positive and negative incentives, ensured the acceptance of princely rule on the ground.
