Michael Woods,

Rural Geography: Processes, Responses and Experiences in Rural Restructuring
 

About the eBook

"Michael Woods has taken on the formidable task of giving an overview of rural places and society in advanced economies as a single author and has presented a book that rightly deserves to be called state-of-the-art."
- Geographische Rundschau

"With Rural Geography Michael Woods remedies the often underestimated dynamism of rural places and rural society by providing the much-needed synthesis of the European and North American literature on rural restructuring and globalization processes."
- Patrick H Mooney, University of Kentucky
