Rural Communities: Legacy and Changeexamines the diversity of rural America: its unique communities, histories, and social issues. It also considers how rural communities use their increasing connectedness to creatively address modern challenges in the face of increasing globalization and climate change. Focusing on various capitals in rural areas-natural, cultural, human, social, political, financial, and built-this book provides students with an essential framework for understanding rural society based on the concepts of social science. Rural Communitiescovers vital issues such as racial and cultural diversity in rural areas; globalization and increasing tensions over international immigration; the impact of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; the central role of communities in organizing a sustainable future; and building community in the context of ubiquitous change. Updates to the fourth edition include new coverage of local food movements, climate change, and the impacts of the global financial crisis.
