The Countryside and Community Research Institute (CCRI) has published a volume of reflective series of essays entitled ‘A quarter century of change in rural Britain and Europe: reflections to mark 25 years of the Countryside and Community Research Institute’.

The CCRI was originally formed as the Countryside and Community Research Unit (CCRU) in 1986, and thus in 2011 celebrated 25 years of research in the rural environment. This newly published volume reflects on the nature of rural change in Britain and Europe since the mid 1980s when a productive and prosperous agriculture was delivering more food than we needed, there was an environmental crisis as a result, and terms such as sustainable development and climate change were only mere whispers of the radical environmentalists. Edited by Nigel Curry and Malcolm Moseley, the essays have been contributed by a team of leading rural commentators, all current or former CCRI staff, thereby producing a series of reflective essays examining the changes to the rural condition brought by the intervening 25 years.
