The changing American countryside: rural people and places






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

The changing American countryside: rural people and places

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. This book brings together contributions of scholars from several disciplines to provide discussion of numerous facets of rural life and rural conditions. Demographic trends in metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas are compared.
