Social Capital Construction and the Role of the Local State.
Warner, Mildred
Rural Sociology, v64 n3 p373-93 Sep 1999
Theoretical rationale and rural examples illustrate that local government, directly or through participatory community-based intermediaries, can promote development of community social capital. Important program features are participant autonomy, linkage, and returns on investment. Examples with varying social capital impacts include cooperative-extension programs, parent resource centers, school-based management teams, and Head Start initiatives. Contains 85 references.
