Review:

""Highly recommended. For students of modern Britain, environmental history, and well-read travelers.""--C.W. Wood Jr., Choice

.".".an ideal text for students and newcomers to the field.""--Alun Howkins, Social History Society's Bulletin

Synopsis:

The enduring 'Town versus Country' debate lies at the root of modern British society. How far did the idealization of the countryside by artists and writers since the Industrial Revolution foster anti-urban, anti-industrial values? How have such values affected government policy, social structure and economic dynamism? Did post-war developments, in particular rural-urban commuting and environmentalist criticism of modern 'industrial' farming, undermine the traditional distinction between town and country, or are they themselves symptoms of the continuing allure of the rural idyll? This book will demonstrate the remarkable influence that attitudes to the countryside have had on the evolution of modern British life.

Academic Book Collection
(Poole, DORSE, United Kingdom)

Book Description Condition: New. Burchardt shows how attitudes of townspeople to the countryside have changed over time, from romantic awe to patriotic feeling, regretful nostalgia, gratitude for the food it supplied and resentment at its social inequalities. Now, more than ever, the 'Town versus Country' debate seems to lie at the root of modern British society. How has Britain, with its mobile population, become so factionalised along, apparently, regional lines? The author looks at, among other things, the idealisation of the countryside by artists and writers, the development of anti-urban and anti-industrial values, rural-urban commuting and the environmentalist criticism of industrial farming. Throughout, these controversies and debates are considered in terms of their effect on government policy, social structure and economic dynamism. Seller Inventory # 1453
