RURAL CANADA: Rural Sociological Perspectives
|Author: ||Dasgupta, Satadal|
Provides a social-scientific overview of rural social structure and change in Canada, presenting a synthesis of the findings and generalizations of a multiplicity of studies that have been conducted over the past fifty years but have not been collected and treated in a single volume.
"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
