COX MICHAE -- Against the Hidden River
This volume provides a unique concentration on heritage and conservation issues within European Union policy contexts, as seen from the perspectives of farmers and other stakeholders, such as planners, local authorities. national governments, and the public at large. Detailed chapters focus on contemporary processes in Scotland, Ireland, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, as well as comparative materials that include Norway. The book's ethnographic approach and its focus on the viewpoints of farmers, especially in Less Favored Areas within the EU, give this book its particular character as a fresh contribution to both conservation and EU studies.
