Rural sociology: its origin and growth in the United States by Lowry Nelson( Book )

52 editions published between 1948 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book deals with the sociology of rural life, emphasizing the analysis of social institutions in the rural environment and the various forms of social interaction among rural groups. 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)
Cuba : the measure of a revolution by Lowry Nelson( Book )

How has the revolution affected the lives of the Cuban people? Are they better off now than before Castro came to power in 1959? If so, in what ways? This book presents a careful measurement of the economic, social, and political consequences of the Cuban revolution. The findings are conclusions are likely to upset common assumptions about Castro's Cuba and to prove discouraging to those who have been optimistic about the ultimate benefits of the revolution
Rural Cuba by Lowry Nelson( Book )

30 editions published between 1950 and 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rural Cuba was first published in 1950. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Impoverished people in a rich landthat is the paradox of Cuba described with thorough documentation by Lowry Nelson, passed professor of sociology at the University of Minnesota. Professor Nelson studied rural Cuba's problems for a year during his appointment as rural sociologist for the U.S. Department of State. With the cooperation of the Cuban government, Professor Nelson directed a series of detailed sociological surveys of representative rural districts. Data were gathered in these surveys on the family habits, agricultural methods, farm tenure, income, educational opportunities, social activities, and level of living of more than 700 rural Cuban families. This material is combined with historical background, census analyses, and on-the-spot observations for a comprehensive study that fills a gap in the available literature on the subject. The volume includes appendixes providing a description of the geography of the survey area and a verbatim sample report of a survey interviewer, together with a glossary of Spanish words, a bibliography, and tables. In this book rural Cuba's problems are thoroughly discussed, present-day progress toward their solution is reported, and suggestions are offered for future agricultural policies that could help enrich the lives of Cuba's people
