This book explores issues of ethnicity, identity, and radicalised exclusion in rural Britain. It questions what the countryside ‘is’, problematises who is seen as belonging to rural spaces, and argues for the recognition of a rural multiculture. The book brings together the latest research findings to provide an account of current theory, policy, and practice. Using interdisciplinary frameworks and new empirical data, it provides a critical and comprehensive account of the shifting, contested connections between rurality, national identity, and ethnicity. It discusses the relationships between ethnicity, exclusion, policy, practice, and research in a range of rural settings – from the experiences of Gypsy Traveller children in schools to attempts to encourage black and minority ethnic visitors to National Parks, and contributes towards establishing the ‘rural–ethnicity–nation’ relationship as a key consideration on political and policy agendas.

Keywords: ethnicity; identity; radicalised exclusion; rural Britain; countryside; rural spaces; rural multiculture; policy; practice; rurality
