, : The changing American countryside: rural people and places. The changing American countryside: rural people and places: xx + 563 pp.

Rural people and places in the USA are poorly understood and largely neglected by the people who write, speak and therefore influence attitudes about social problems and public policy.

Demographic trends in metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas are compared.
