Reviews

"Surprisingly, there has never been a Canadian textbook on rural sociology. Dasgupta's book is `a modest attempt' to fill the void. . . . written in a clear, simple style that makes it appropriate for undergraduate use. Among the many pedagogically useful features is a summary of idealized polar differences between the `traditional' and `contemporary' Canadian farming communities." - The Canadian Review of Sociology and Anthropology
