Media reviews
This book, by acknowledged leaders in their field, will make invaluable reading for all of those involved in the study of countryside management. The authors combine a clarity of presentation, with a closely-argued depth of subject treatment, to provide new insights into the strategic relationship between the rural resource, rural policy and rural organisations. I believe that it will become a core text in this field. - Nigel Curry, Professor of Countryside Planning, University of the West of England, Bristol.
