Rurality and Patterns of Social Disruption.
Wilkinson, Kenneth P.
Rural Sociology, v49 n1 p23-36 Spr 1984
Argues that structural cleavages provoke social disruptions where opportunities are conducive.

Data from northeastern United States indicate that rurality, combined with other population characteristics (provocation, ascriptive inequality, poverty, traditional values), affects rates of nonlethal violence, homicide, suicide, and divorce.
