This series arises out of the need for the international dissemination of ongoing empirical and theoretical research on rural areas in advanced societies. Rural areas, their residents and agencies, are facing rapid social, economic and political changes. The balance between production, amenity, mobility and development is undergoing change as economic activities become relocated and the value placed on rural living varies with affluence. Local, national and intentional policies have direct influence upon rural areas, not only those concerned with agriculture but also development intitiatives, overall economic and social policies and regional and fiscal arrangements. It is increasingly recognised that such changes demand a strong multi-disciplinary social science perspective which is both problem orientated and provides a critical approach to the analysis of change. Each edited volume draws together leading international contributors writing to a set theme.
