First published in 1999, this volume features articles from 19 contributors on local responses to global integration, with a focus on rural areas and their adoption of new functions as both producers and consumers. It responds to a crisis in the regulatory framework and reconsiders globality, revealing new forms of production and consumption developing in diverse ways amongst these global rural communities. Authors from Australia, Bulgaria, Finland, Greece, Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, the United Kingdom and Venezuela are represented.
