RURAL LIFE AND URBANIZED SOCIETY.
JONES, ARTHUR R., JR.; TAYLOR, LEE
WIDESPREAD CHANGES IN RURAL AMERICAN LIFE HAVE RESULTED IN THE CONCEPT OF URBANIZED SOCIAL ORGANIZATION--THE REACTION AND INTERACTION OF RURAL AND URBAN CITIZENS TO THE SAME PATTERN OF SOCIAL ORGANIZATION. THE ENTIRE POPULATION HAS BECOME SUBJECT TO URBAN-DERIVED SOCIAL STRUCTURES. FACTORS SUCH AS TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT AND MASS MEDIA DEVELOPMENT HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO A MERGING OF POPULATION. MODERN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY HAVE CHANGED THE COMPLEXION OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION TO WHERE A DECLINING FARM POPULATION IS OVERPRODUCING IN TERMS OF NATIONAL NEEDS. RURAL-URBAN DIFFERENCES IN EDUCATIONAL, FAMILY, AND POLITICAL INSTITUTIONS HAVE BEEN DISAPPEARING AS THE VALUES AND GOALS OF URBANIZED SOCIETY HAVE BECOME MORE PREVALENT. EXTENSIVE BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATIONS FOLLOW EACH CHAPTER. THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE FROM OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS, NEW YORK. (JEH)
