The dualism of “land equals stagnation” and “city equals modernization” is a common scholarly pattern that needs to be questi-oned. The relationship between city and countryside has mostly been seen as a one-way street and as an “either/or”, either city or country. This raises the question: is this dichotomy tenable in light of recent research on transformation processes? What happened in-between city and countryside and in movements that headed in both directions?
