About this book

Most land in the United States is in rural areas, as are the sources of most of its fresh water and almost all its other natural resources. This book integrates the work of 18 leading scholars to focus on two complex interdependencies - one pertaining to natural resources and human welfare, the other to urban and rural communities and their economies.

Media reviews
Many key issues of the 21st Century revolve around rural-urban interdependencies, including alternative energy, protecting our natural environment, and maintaining the vitality of American's rural communities. They require innovative policy applications of rural development and natural resource policy. Frontiers in Resource and Rural Economics will be valuable to those interested in regional planning, rural community development, urban sprawl and exurban change, and natural resources. - Mark Partridge, The Ohio State University"
