Space, limits and boundaries
This is my last substantive chapter, and writing it makes me realise more strongly than ever how this book is more of a clarion call than a complete vision. The areas covered here are some of the most intractable and the questions that I feel least qualiﬁed to answer. Applying the bioregional vision to provisioning systems is an important and urgent task I believe, and a broad-ranging one. It is perhaps inevitable, therefore, that in this ﬁrst book my job is as usual to raise questions as to ﬁnd solutions. I have approached my subject from the perspective of political economy, but I am aware of raising more political questions than I can easily ﬁnd answers to. This is particularly so in this chapter, where I begin to propose how the bioregions and their resources might be governed.
