Description

This collection of papers examines the role of courts, the police, the legal profession and welfare agencies in the rural environment, with a particular emphasis on the situation in Wales. The papers discuss the distinctive problems which are encountered by such bodies in a rural context, and also the implications for rural areas of a situation in which policy is often determined centrally rather than locally and with the typical problems of urban areas in mind. The book also investigates the concept of rurality in the context of research into the operation of the legal system.
