For nearly 150 years living in a house in the country has been what many of us aspire to. This book explores how this idea was imported from the US by Ebenezer Howard, founder of the garden city movement, the impact it has had in the UK and why, on cost and environmental grounds, it's time to move on from this approach. House in the Country presents a richly detailed narrative containing much social and cultural commentary as well as interviews with key figures in this field, including Lord Heseltine.
