Social change in rural Australia

book
posted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by Geoffrey Lawrence, Kristen Lyons, Salim Momtaz
"Australian rural society is undergoing rapid structural transformation, the contours of which are now being 'mapped' by social scientists. Wider structural changes - including terms of trade decline in agriculture, the policies of Transnational Corporations (TNCs) involved in agri-food production, decisions by the state to limit expenditure in Australia's rural regions, and the influences of global regulatory (and other) bodies - are having direct and indirect impacts upon farming systems and rural communities.This book is an attempt to examine change in contemporary Australian rural society, drawing largely from the theoretical concerns and methodological approaches from the (sub)disciplines of human geography and rural sociology."--Introduction.
