Farmers' Organizations and Movements: Research Needs and a Bibliography of the United States and Canada.
Morrison, Denton E., Ed.
One of the purposes of the North Central Rural Sociology Sub-committee on Farm Organizations is to serve as a mechanism through which statewide studies of farm organizations in Wisconsin and Michigan would be partially coordinated. To communicate both the knowledge needs and the accumulated literature on farmers' organizations and movements to other researchers is the purpose of this bulletin. Part I of the bulletin comprises 3 essays that outline the sub-committee members' views on needed research. The first 2 essays, "Some Needs in Farm Organization Research" and "Needed Research on Farmers' Movements," deal primarily with research that would contribute to the development of basic sociological knowledge and theory on organizations and movements. The third essay, "Applied Sociological Research on Farm Organizations and Farmers' Movements," focuses specifically on research of practical utility to those concerned with building viable farm organizations. Part II of the bulletin is "A Bibliography of U.S. and Canadian General Farm Organizations and Farmers' Movements," consisting of 998 items published between 1846 and 1969. The bibliography is alphabetized in a single list by author, but a "Title Index" and an "Index of Place, Person, Specific Organization, and Specific Movement Names in Titles" are also provided. (JH)
