Praise for the latest volume:

Metropolitan Ruralities, volume 23

"Metropolitan Ruralities explores many of the complex rural/ urban relationships of our time. While previously rural areas were seen as reserves for urban expansion, there is now finally recognition that such a path, if unabated, could threaten human existence. This volume coherently makes this argument.
This excellent volume addresses some of the most critical questions about the rural/ urban nexus. It raises complex questions about governance, the consumption of the rural, and focuses on the important dimensions of social class, gender and global location. The important argument is made that the urban-rural fringe needs to be examined as a space in and for itself, rather than a space for something else, and this is an important contribution to current debates on spatial flows.
The volume is coherently organised around the four themes of urban sprawl, urbanisation, governance and metabolism. It brings together leading scholars and it is a volume that will be valuable for academics and PhD researchers across the globe."
Professor Sally Shortall, Head of School, Queens University Belfast
