About this product
- DescriptionNew twenty-first century ecomic, social and environmental changes have challenged and reshaped rural Australia. They range from ageing populations, youth out-migration, immigration policies (that seek to place skilled migrants in rural Australia), tree changers, agricultural restructuring and new relationships with indigeus populations. Challenges also exist around the 'patchwork ecomy' and the wealth that the mining boom offers some areas, while threatening regional ecomic decline in others. Rural Australia is increasingly t simply a place of production of agriculture and minerals but an idea that individuals seek and are encouraged to consume. The socio-ecomic implications of drought, water rights and changing farming practices, have prefaced new social, cultural and ecomic reforms. This book provides a contemporary perspective on rapidly evolving population, ecomic and environmental changes in 'rural and regional Australia', itself a significant concept. Bringing together a range of empirical studies, the book builds on established rural studies themes such as population change, ecomic restructuring and globalisation in agriculture but links such changes to environmental change, culture, class, gender, and ethnic diversity. Presenting original and in-depth interventions on these issues and their intersections, this book assembles the best of contemporary research on rural Australia.
