Rural Development: An Emerging Social, Economic, and Demographic Imperative
Leagans, J. Paul
America is passing through a social, economic, demographic, and technological evolution that is "unhitching" the rural development process from the modern agricultural development process. The purpose of this paper is to analyze some major dimensions of this trend and relate the implications to emerging opportunities of land-grant universities, government agencies, and business enterprises for broadened public service to rural modernization.
