Rural urbanism: London landscapes in the early nineteenth century

Arnold, Dana (2005) Rural urbanism: London landscapes in the early nineteenth century, Manchester, UK, Manchester University Press, 221pp.

Record type: Book


This original and innovative book examines a period in which the development of London was perhaps at its most intense, for in the opening decades of the nineteenth century a concerted attempt was made to transform the metropolis into a modern European capital.
For the first time the re-imaging of London is considered in relation to attitudes towards land, land ownership and the use of landscapes. The author contends that methods of land management and development and the associative values of landscape usually connected with rural environments, were in many ways equally applicable to country and city and formed essential components in the evolution of the metropolis.
This study of London landscapes will be of relevance to a broad range of researchers, academics and those with a lively interest in architectural, social, economic and cultural history.
