Rural Regeneration in the UK provides an accessible yet critical overview of rural regeneration policy and governance in the UK. It charts the key patterns and processes of rural change since 1945 and the emergence and evolution of rural regeneration policy and governance in shaping rural spaces. A key objective of the book is to highlight how, and to what extent, rural regeneration policy and governance are responsive to an increasingly differentiated and uneven rural economy and society.

Section one considers the context for rural regeneration, including theoretical frameworks of relevance and the ways in which rural regeneration policy and governance have been framed. In particular, it includes a consideration of how the rural has been made `thinkable', and the extent to which this has moved beyond traditional concerns with agricultural development. Section two highlights the key dimensions and spaces of rural regeneration. This includes responses to rural change from `within the rural', including community-led approaches, the use of culture and the environment and the extent to which approaches may be converging or diverging within a devolved UK. Section three summarizes key contemporary debates and considers future directions.

Rural Regeneration provides a comprehensive and integrated analysis of responses to rural change that will be appeal to a broad audience of students, scholars and practitioners both in the UK and abroad.
