Focuses on how certain constructs are bound up with ideas of tradition, power, and conformity and have become privileged over other constructs. Provides examples of the experiences of certain marginalized groups within rural areas, explores the activities of a number of groups that have attempted to challenge mainstream perceptions and usage, and considers changing rural power structures and some key confrontations between new rural residents and traditional elites. Among the topics are re-negotiating the boundaries of race and citizenship, rural pollution and environmental others, hunt followers, diverging voices in a rural Welsh community, and gendered experiences of community in village life.
