Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful read! I have explored a number of these dying villages in the northern part of Spain and so found this book gave a real insight to the these villages. This is a book that as with all Tom Pow,s books is beautifully written and very touching in places. A definite good summer read!

This book is an interesting study of a growing issue. We tend to think of migration from country to city as a phenomenon of the past, but it is still a very current issue throughout the world. However, the book becomes rather repetitive, and after a while, I found myself skipping sections.

The book "In Another World: Among Europe's Dying Villages" has some fascinating insights into the decline of village life in Spain, France, England and Russia. The topic needs a lot more explanation - is TV really the main reason why so many villages in France, for example, are dying? The confusion of the post World War 2 period, plus the innovations in high technology jobs, media and communications mean that the reasons for such a decline are complex. There is sadness in empty villages in Spain, Russia etc., but a lot more could be written about Italy and elsewhere as well. I am trying to grasp the major reasons why the book lacks so much - it is disjointed and does not follow a pattern of selecting major causal factors and then identifying them across Europe. It is more or less a random selection of tiny segments of Europe and why they, in particular are dying, without looking at a whole range of reasons, both internal and external. The book needs more comprehensive research. It is interesting reading but leaves one with more questions than answers.
