Village England PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Village England free pdf The romantic imagery of village England and the prominence that this commands in English cultural identity is well known. Yet just how accurate is this notion of the rural idyll in which the organic nature of village life was gradually undermined, and destroyed, by social and economic factors? Trevor Wild's text explores the evolution of "village England" from the earliest times to the present. Drawing upon both contemporary accounts and scholarship, he provides and engaging and revealing account of the major transformation affecting the English village. Of particular interest is the book's coverage of the more recent past, with the whittling away of the great estates, the appearance of such institutions as the village hall and the development of alternative systems of power such as the councils.
