|| Rural America is undergoing a dramatic and sustained post-industrial economic transition. This book draws on contemporary concepts of ex-urbanization, rural amenity-based development, and increased conurbation to argue that that the character of rural housing reflects this transition. The work argues that housing policy must hence be modified to reflect such radical economic and societal changes.
