Looking across different international experiences this book aims to develop new conceptual propositions and theoretical insights, supported by detailed case studies and reviews of available data.

The Companion gives coverage to emerging topics in rural planning and seeks to position it in the broader context of global challenges: climate change, the loss of biodiversity, food and energy security, and low carbon futures. It also looks at old, established questions in new ways: at social and spatial justice, place shaping, economic development, and environmental and landscape management.



Manfred Perlik, Giulia Galera, Ingrid Machold and Andrea Membretti (eds.)
