Anthropological approaches to rural Western Europe today

edited by Jeremy MacClancy

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides, for the first time in two decades, an anthropological examination of rural life in contemporary Western Europe
  • Examines the changes caused by the replacement of locals, now in cities, by alternatives, lifestyle-chasers, and labour migrants from outside the EU
  • Questions current understandings of differences between the rural and the urban
  • Critically examines regionalists' politicization of rural populations and of rurality
