This title was first published in 2002: While world-wide political, sociological and economic processes encourage the marginalization of peripheral areas, the general degradation of the ecosystem increasingly affects marginal populations as they are more likely to use natural resources. The fact that these communities suffer greatly from environmental, economic and social problems also tends to prevent them adopting a sustainable use of these local resources. Using a series of international case studies from both developed and developing countries, this remarkable volume explores issues of sustainable development in marginalized regions of the world. It discusses population development and sustainability, as well as environment and sustainability, from the point of view of regional development. It also examines globalization and the role of education in encouraging a sustainable path of development. A common focus shared by the contributors is that of the human aspects of development, as well as the concept of sustainability and its usefulness in geographical and economic research. The volume provides an insightful overview of the issues that touch sustainability in marginal and critical regions.

Author Biography

Heikki Jussila, University of Oulu, Finland. I have done research in the issues of rural development and northern issues since I have joined the group of researchers doing research on the issues of marginality within the framework of IGU. During the past years I have been the secretary of the IGU Commission that had the task to investigate the issues of marginality. During that period I have edited together with Prof. Majoral, Prof. Mutambirwa, Prof. Delgado-Cravidao and Prof. Leimgruber four books regarding the issues of marginality in global context. All these have been published by Ashgate, the first with Prof. Majoral and Leimgruber was an Avebury publication. Prof. Majoral University of Barcelona, Spain, has been doing research on the issues of marginality in Spain. Her work has concentrated in defining and delimiting the phenomenon in Spain. She has also published volumes regarding the issues of marginality and rurality in Spain. Prof. Bradley Cullen University of New Mexico, USA, has been working on the issues of marginality in the context of resource use and has done work on the issue of how resource communities have changed in the USA.
