Through this essay we want to try and recreate the history of the debate which developed in France from the 60s to the 90s on the topic of periurban areas. Referring mainly but not only to the French sociological literature, we shall discuss the way in which these new territories came into existence, their definition, and the major common features of the people that inhabit them. The phenomenon of periurban areas, often considered as a step back towards the countryside, is rather to be regarded as part of, and in line with, the process of urbanisation which has taken place in western societies over the past few centuries. A deeper look into periurban areas can help us perceive and understand some of the most significant aspects of the new "emerging city".
