Demossier, Marion, Demossier, Marion and Clout, H.(eds.) (2003) Rural France in Europe: new challenges Modern & Contemporary France, 11, (3), pp. 265-278. (doi:10.1080/0963948032000128537).

Record type: Article


This article examines the specificity of rural France in Europe and assesses the nature of the new challenges confronting it. Discussing the changes affecting the peasant world and French rural society, it aims to provide a balanced picture of the agricultural question by linking it to the issue of ruralité. Rural France has now become an object of debate not only for French society, but also for the future of European agriculture. The article also analyses to what extent France remains original in its position as the most ‘rural’ of the western European states by examining its relationship to its territoire and its integration into a global economy
