An Annotated Bibliography of Small Town Research.
Smith, Suzanne M.
The purpose of this annotated bibliography is to list books, articles, and bulletins (written from 1900 to 1968) related to small towns in the United States. The work contributes to the project "Population Changes in Small Towns," sponsored by the Division of Social Sciences of the National Science Foundation and by the University of Wisconsin College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Research Programs Office. Emphasis has been given to writings with a demographic or an ecological perspective because of the increased concern with the future of small towns as related to population changes and associated factors. The bibliography is divided into sections: studies of problems, policies, national patterns of growth and decline, and town-and-country relationships; dissertations and master's theses on the small town; references on related work concerning rural areas and the urbanization process; and additional bibliographies which identify literature related to small-town phenomena.
