Small-Town America:
Finding Community, Shaping the Future
Robert Wuthnow

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"In Small-Town America there is a wealth of information for the field researcher, the demographer, the survey designer, and the community theorist. We are confident that Wuthnow’s work will lead to more insightful explorations in community theory and how rural America continues to play a significant role in American society."--Matthew L. McKnight and Ralph B. Brown, American Journal of Sociology

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This engaging book offers a reassessment of small-town life, avoiding nostalgic simplifications and placing the small town into proper perspective relative to the rest of American society. Wuthnow navigates through misperceptions held by many people--including some social scientists--and offers a more balanced view of small-town life and culture. I know of no other book like it."--Wade Clark Roof, University of California, Santa Barbara

"Small-Town America fills a significant gap in the sociological literature. Grounded in a nationally representative survey, ethnographic site visits, and scores of in-depth interviews, Wuthnow's nuanced and sensitive book draws on the voices of small-town Americans and challenges enduring stereotypes. Wuthnow takes the conversation deeper, and he does not avoid the hot-button issues."--John Schmalzbauer, Missouri State University
