The Country and the City

by Raymond Williams - £10.99  Vintage Publishing (Vintage Classics) (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781784870829 | ISBN 10: 178487082x

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY TRISTRAM HUNT
 
Our collective notion of the city and country is irresistibly powerful. The city as the seat of enlightenment, sophistication, power and greed is in profound contrast with an innocent, peaceful, backward countryside. Examining literature since the sixteenth century, Williams traces the development of our conceptions of these two traditional poles of life.
 
His groundbreaking study casts the country and city as central symbols for the social and economic changes associated with capitalist development.
