Abstract

A collection of 11 papers on issues of representation, power and identity within the British countryside. Researchers in this area have looked beyond the ideas of tradition, power, order and conformity, to groups who feel themselves to be marginalized or excluded from the dominant ideologies in the countryside, such as New Age travellers, road protestors, anti-hunt groups, smallholders and low-income groups. These papers highlight the initial fruits of this research and attempt to reveal other "rural others"—different ideas about the countryside, different uses of rural space, and transgressions of and challenges to notions of mainstream rural lifestyles.
