Social Impacts of Nonmetro Industrial Growth. Annotated Bibliography of U.S. Case Studies. SRDC Series Publication No. 18.
Selvik, Arne, Comp.; Summers, Gene F., Comp.
A reference for program and research planning on industrialization in nonmetropolitan (rural) areas, this annotated bibliography cites U.S. case studies on social impacts caused by rural industrial growth completed between 1965 and 1974. More than 150 journal articles (written by economists, geographers, and sociologists) and research reports (master's and Ph.D. dissertations, Experiment Station Bulletins) are listed alphabetically by author. Citations of material are limited to those reporting data from an empirical assessment of a new plant siting; each had to address the question, Does it report on some aspect of community response to the location of a new manufacturing plant? The plant location had to have occurred since 1945 to avoid the unique aspects of rural plant locations related to war efforts of the 1940's. The number of documents cited increases with recency of publication. Names of journals from which materials were drawn, with their publisher, address, and editor, are provided in an appendix. (RS)
