Summary:"Villages of Vision is a much celebrated and pioneering book about
planned villages. Gillian Darley includes many hundreds, among them
the strange and pretty arcadias built by conscience-stricken
aristocrats, industrialists and visionaries." "This revised edition
includes a greatly expanded gazetteer, a revised bibliography and a
new introduction. The subject is as timely as ever. Bournville and
New Earswick are still shrines to the optimism of philanthropic
industrialists of high principle, while their charitable foundations
lead the way in thinking about communities and social housing. The
gazetteer shows, county by county, where such villages can be seen -
not as museums but as evolving, living places."--BOOK JACKET.
Notes:"A study of strange utopias"--Cover.
"With a nationwide gazetteer listing over 400 villages"--Cover.
