PDF Rural sociology focuses on how rural people and communities are . In rural areas these issues were manifest. Dwight Sanderson, the first president of the Rural Sociological Society (RSS), had. degrees in agriculture and entomology.

In rural areas these issues were manifest. in outmigration, the scale and pace of technological and social change, and in. transformations taking place in agriculture. This early disciplinary heterogeneity helped to. give rural sociology a flavor of heterodoxy.

This bucolic image of rural life is often contrasted with the murder and mayhem that is supposed to typify urban .

This bucolic image of rural life is often contrasted with the murder and mayhem that is supposed to typify urban America. Srole (1972) traced this distinction back to the Old Testament with the city life of Sodom and Gomorrah being portrayed as an example of evil. In North America, the decline of the family farm, the rise of agribusiness, and the integration of rural areas into urban society has contributed to the undermining of the traditional communitarian culture (Cordes, 1990). Murray and Kupinsky (1982) found that now fewer rural Americans participate in community activities, such as granges, church functions, and civic groups, than in the past.

The spatial diversity of rural economic activity, and a high level of dependence of the countryside on urban economic activity, implies that models based on a single sector, that focus only on economic activity or that assume a simple differentiation between urban and rural are problematic.

Rural sociology is the study of social organization and social processes .

Thus, rural sociology can be defined as the sociology of rural society. Moreover, some aspects of rural sociological analysis are closely related to other social science disciplines, such as settlement patterns with human geography, family and kinship systems with social anthropology, and land tenure and farming systems with agricultural and land economics.
