Overview

This book discusses the contribution of collaborative rural community efforts to the challenge of responding to change in the late 20th century advanced capitalist economy of the U.S. Rural society is being transformed by having to adapt to a new international order, a changing role for government, the accepted interdependence of community and economic development and the strong relationship between community and place. The participation of rural people in thinking more about their own future and putting into practice their ideas for securing it demands a central position on the policy agenda. It is within this context that the authors review recent progress on the rural development front and provide a critical study of associated processes and achievements. This book offers an in-depth discussion on rural community change and development and combines a critical review of shifting public policy.
