Theories & Methods in Rural Community Studies
- H. Mendras
- I. Mihailescu, For the Vienna Centre, Vienna, Austria
This volume is the result of an international comparative research project entitled "The Future of Rural Communities in Industrialized Societies". The presentation of national studies led to discussions on the methods of local studies, on their theoretical basis and on their scientific and practical use. It is these discussions which are featured in this book. The national studies themselves are now published by Pergamon Press in volumes I and II of Rural Community Studies in Europe, with a third volume to come.
Of interest to researchers in social science and specialists in community studies.
