Comparative political ecology is used as an organizing suggestion through the e-book to explain the character of exurban parts within the U.S. and Australia, even if exurbs are universal to many nations. The essays every one describe particular case reviews, with each one bankruptcy utilizing the most important options of competing rural capitalisms and asymmetric environmental administration to explain the politics of exurban switch.
