This introductory chapter explores an exclusionary way of seeing nation through the notions of the rural. It examines the outcomes of this and the nature of the challenges posed. The first part of the chapter looks at the links between identity, rural spaces, and nation formation. The discourses and practices of exclusion are then scrutinised. The chapter ends with an outline of the organisation of this book and the concerns of the chapters within it.
