Between 1990 and 1993 the authors worked together on a research project based at University of Wales, Lampeter. The report was commissioned by the Welsh Office, who did not publish the findings. This text analyzes and interprets this research to produce a possibly controversial picture of contemporary rural life in the welsh countryside. This comprehensive view of post-war Welsh rural life looks at social and cultural issues, housing and social change, employment, incomes and poverty, transport, community and environment.
