Rural Development Literature 1976-1977: An Updated Annotated Bibliography.
Buzzard, Shirley, Comp.
More than 100 books and articles on rural development published during 1976-77 are annotated in this selective bibliography. Concentrating on social science literature, the bibliography is interdisciplinary in nature, spanning agricultural economics, anthropology, community development, community health, and rural sociology. Types of works specifically excluded are technical agriculture, descriptions of special programs and research restricted to limited geographic areas without broader implications, purely demographic data on rural to urban migration, and government publications which are primarily informational. Only works pertinent to rural development in the U.S. are listed. In the selection process, more than 50 professional journals were inspected as well as "Sociological Abstracts,""Development Abstracts," and "Books in Print." Some evaluative comments on content or style are included in annotations. Entries are organized alphabetically by last name of the first author, and a topic index of 31 headings lists citations under at least one category; many are cross referenced. An addendum of 12 works, neither annotated nor indexed completes the bibliography. (RS)
