Country Visions is a highly readable, challenging and incisive collection of essays, exploring different ways of knowing rurality; of understanding the countryside. The essays suggest that we must go beyond cultural constructions of rural idyll and their accompanying political, cultural and theoretical orthodoxies, which risk both "purification" of transgressive presences and practices, and ignorance of significant agency and performance. It begs questions about how to read, analyse and write about the country; about how the countryside works for its actors; and how it might work better in the future.
