dc.description.abstractWhat can we do about struggling, peripheral, rural regions? What do rural places have to contribute to 21st century economies besides the tourist economy? Why have some rural regions seemed to epitomise both a highly conservative, and anti-establishment position? This book uses ethnographic research and qualitative interviews with members of the public and some policy makers, to examine this question. Over a year long project in Cornwall in the South West of the UK, and the South West of Virginia, USA, the book considers what becomes visible if we understand the region through the words of ordinary people, rather than planners and policy-makers. Drawing on the Deleuzian affective assemblage, it builds the concept of the Complex Adaptive Region-Assemblage to examine the deep interconnectedness between people, objects, organisations and the processes that we find in the regions that we observe. This book explores what becomes visible if we look at regions in a different way, and how this might help us to address some of the economic and social inequalities which characterise contemporary polities.en_GB
