Rural Industrial Development Bibliography. Selected Impact Study Documents. Working Paper RID 75.1, January 1975.
Summers, Gene F.; And Others
The 186 documents included in this bibliography of rural industrial development constitute nearly 30 years of research effort by scores of social scientists interested in ascertaining the measurable impact of new industry on demographic, economic, and/or social dimensions of rural community life in the U.S. Restricting the meaning of "industrial development" to the location of new manufacturing plants, this bibliography includes documents which report data from an empirical assessment of a new plant site having occurred between 1945 and 1975 and having had measured impacts. Many of these items are part of what is oftentimes referred to as "fugitive literature". Frequency of bibliographic entries increases with the recency of publication. (JC)
