Published: 26 July 2017

For the full review please see the webpage here



"This collection will hopefully be a starting point for more discussion and more investigations into rural–urban relationships. It provides an insightful look into the ways in which rural–urban relationships developed over the nineteenth century, in areas which have attracted less scholarly attention in the past. Its interdisciplinarity highlights how approaching this subject from different perspectives and different sources can add to the ways in which rural–urban relationships are viewed. The case-study approach in particular strengthens the collection by highlighting how different relationships formed in different areas. This collection is a very good starting point for examining how relationships between the rural and the urban were formed, and is a worthwhile addition to urban–environmental historiography, whilst simultaneously highlighting that there is more that can, and should, be done on this subject."
