Power Structures and Rural Development.
Beal, George M.
Some of the assumptions, conditions, and parameters which deal with power structures and rural development are briefly specified in this paper. The definitions (conceptual and operational) for power, social power, authority, influence, power structure, development, and rural are discussed. The ideological orientation under which development activities are assumed, expected, required, or desired to be carried out is discussed as a 5-part typology. These typoligies include the Empirical-Rational, the Normative-Re-educative, the Influence-Manipulative model, the Power Coercive model, and the Conflict model. The scope, type, amount, and responsibility for development and the decision-making units which must be involved in development decisions are also specified. (NQ)
