About this book

The complex and conflicting demands that society makes on the countryside have led to an increasingly strategic approach to its management. This important new work evaluates the key challenges facing managers and policy-makers in the contemporary British countryside and critically examines a range of strategies for making the most of our natural heritage.

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.
