Land Matters: Power Struggles in Rural Ireland

Land Matters: Power Struggles in Rural Ireland

Ethel Crowley

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

According to forecasts today's 40,000 farmers will number 10,000 in twenty years.

As our Irish rural image undergoes radical transformation this timely, informative and vigorously argued book will be necessary reading for those working in rural development, food production and conservation.

"Land Matters" concerns social and ecological change in rural Ireland, and the end results of structural and policy decisions made in Brussels or Dublin. The following themes are addressed in the body of the book: global social forces shaping Irish society; the CAP (Common Agricultural Policy); social inequality; the impact of REPS (Rural Environment Protection Scheme); survival strategies in everyday life; green capitalism; landscape, heritage and the politics of perception; contrasting rural visions; and contrasting views of one region - west Cork - in which competing claims are made by farmers, hoteliers, conservationists and second-home owners.

The role of key organizations such as Teagasc, the IFA, An Taisce and the Organic Trust are also examined and profiled. No one can be untouched by the issues raised in this pioneering work.
