    This volume draws on the work of scholars from across Canada, each dealing with the rural-urban fringe in their own way. Contributors include scholars from Sociology, Geography, Planning, Recreation, Tourism and Rural Development; from senior scholars with decades of experience and younger scholars with new and exciting ideas and perspectives. Through these diverse contributions the chapters collectively address rural-urban fringe zones in Canada as areas of conflict and controversy.

    This book is organized into seven parts: Conceptual Perspectives; Population Change; Agriculture; Recreation and Tourism; Community; Planning and Agriculture; and Planning and Development.
