Investigating various ways in which the cultures of the town and the countryside interact in architecture, original essays in this book written by an international range of recognized theorists will help all students of architecture and urban design understand how the urban and rural relate.

Taking a broad historical sweep, this collection draws on a symposium of the Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain.
