Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"Various factors – ranging from the salience of ‘sustainability’ rhetoric in rural policies to the continuing vigour of the IGU Commission Sustainable Rural Systems, from which the present volume originates – suggest that the former may be more likely than the latter. … Most of the contributors are well-known in their respective fields and write with insight and authority. … it is a useful contribution to the literature." (A S Mather, The Geographical Journal, Vol. 171 (3), 2005)
