Part I consists of a review (Chapter 1) and a preview (Chapter 2). Part II deals with the problem of human adjustment to physical environment, an especially critical matter for farm people. Part III deals with population trends, characteristics, and movement. The section on population is deliberately shortened, not because the author does not consider the topic important, but because more extended treatment is not justified in a beginning course. Much of the population data ordinarily treated in separate chapters is discussed in the book in such chapters as the family, school, church, and other institutions. Ethnic data are considered somewhat in the chapter on assimilation. However, the teacher who wishes to do so may supplement and expand the population material by outside reading. Following the treatment of the role of physical environment in rural society, and the characteristics of the population, there is in Part IV a series of chapters dealing with the basic forms of social interaction, or the social processes. Finally, in Part V is the analysis of the basic institutions of rural society"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)
