Revitalizing Rural America : A Perspective on Collaboration and Community
Rural America is diverse and its problems have many dimensions, yet policies are piecemeal and resources are constrained. Rural development is becoming ever more strongly identified with community-led regeneration initiatives. This study discusses the contribution of collaborative rural community efforts to the challenge of responding to change in the late 20th-century capitalist economy of the USA. The participation of rural people in 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 of rural community change and development, combined with a critical review of shifting public policies.
