Rural Communities

Rural Communities

Legacy + Change

Rural Communities: Legacy + Change examines the complexity of rural America through its unique Community Capitals framework. The seven pillars of natural, cultural, human, social, political, financial, and built capitals each provide a way to understand and address the challenges and opportunities facing rural societies, from the age-old tensions between resource-based businesses and environmentalists to the growing ethnic and racial diversity of nonurban areas.

Each chapter opens with a contemporary case study that illustrates various concepts raised in that chapter. This fully updated sixth edition features student-friendly learning objectives that highlight the important topics covered in each chapter, as well as increased coverage of grassroots efforts and institutional initiatives that promote positive change. Engaging and accessible, Rural Communities is a classic introduction to the study of rural sociology.
