The Child in the Country penetrates beyond the popular romantic ideal of country childhood and vividly documents the realities facing children in rural areas. Such controversial and topical issues as the decline of public transport, the closure of village shops and schools, the lack of access to fields, woods and streams, adn the influx of affluent newcomers are acutely analyzed in relation to the country child. A final section reminds us that most children in the world are poor country dwellers, describes the plight of teenagers trapped in villages and discusses the different styles of rural development.
