`This book is truly international in relevance and its authorship - with over 50 authors from at least 10 different countries. The topics covered are wide-ranging yet comprehensive and unified by an interesting descriptive theory (the 8 Ds of Beyond Periphery). The book's contents, and the 8 Ds theory in particular, should be essential reading and provide rich food for thought (and possibly debate) for anyone researching the demographics or economics of remote communities, or more generally anyone grappling with the complexities of trying to contribute to sustainable futures for these communities.' -- Anthony Barnes, Charles Darwin University, Australia
