Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)

CLOUT H. (Directeur de publication) ;


The first four chapters adopt a time perspective to explore : the distinctive character of rural geography in Britain, the rise of productivist farming, conceptualizing agricultural change, and the evolution of landownership and property rights. The next cluster traces essential connections in rural geography : earth and life, nature and culture, agendas for nature conservation, and the gap between policy and action for sustainable development. The next group of chapters covers policy-related issues associated with agricultural change, tenant farmers and the CAP, and diversification of farms and rural areas. The last chapter traces the influential career of Richard Munton, one of Britain's most important rural and environmental geographers. - (HC)
