Conflict In The Community: A Challenge For Land Grant Universities, Thomas W. Ilvento Dec 1996

Conflict In The Community: A Challenge For Land Grant Universities, Thomas W. Ilvento

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This paper revisits the notion of conflict in the community and then discusses a relatively new strategy for dealing with community conflict that is gaining popularity: alternative dispute resolution (ADR), particularly mediation. While ADRs are not entirely new, there has been a renewed interest in them as viable strategies for community development and public policy education. Conflict in communities is ubiquitous and should demand greater attention by rural sociologists, particularly those involved in community development. Environmental mediation is a strategy through which rural sociologists can effectively assist a community in resolving conflict Furthermore, as rural sociologists study and practice environmental ...


Farm Families Moving To Town: An Analysis Of Farm Population Declines, Don E. Albrecht Dec 1996

Farm Families Moving To Town: An Analysis Of Farm Population Declines, Don E. Albrecht

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Recent census data indicate that a sizable proportion of individuals and families operating farms in the United States are choosing to live in urban and rural communities rather than on the farmstead. This phenomena is occurring in all regions of the country. In this paper, hypotheses are developed and tested to help explain and understand this phenomena and the variations that exist from county to county. County level data from the 1978 and 1987 Census of Agriculture and the 1980 and 1990 Census of Population are analyzed. Results show that counties with larger proportions of farm families living in the ...


A Social Exchange Explanation Of Participation In The U.S. Farm Program, John K. Thomas, Jack Thigpen Dec 1996

A Social Exchange Explanation Of Participation In The U.S. Farm Program, John K. Thomas, Jack Thigpen

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Passage of the 1990 Food, Agriculture, Conservation, and Trade Act resulted from the political influence of many environmental interest groups and, consequently, included many conservation provisions. As agricultural policy has increasingly reflected the environmental concerns of the public, farmers who participate in the Farm Program have adjusted their production practices to conserve land and water resources, minimize use of agrichemicals, and control animal wastes. Social exchange theory was used to examine personal and farm characteristics that could affect agroenvironmental attitudes, Farm Program participation, and conservation practices of Texas farmers (n = 1,063 farmers) in 199 1. One in four farmers ...


Changing Employment Patterns In Nonmetropolitan America: Implications For Family Structure, Don E. Albrecht, Stan L. Albrecht Dec 1996

Changing Employment Patterns In Nonmetropolitan America: Implications For Family Structure, Don E. Albrecht, Stan L. Albrecht

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

During the past few decades, the industria/employment structure of rural America has changed dramatically. The major causes of these changes have been technological developments which have reduced the human labor needs in the natural resources industries of agriculture, forestry, fisheries, and mining. While employment in the natural resources industries has declined, the loss of these jobs has been offset by increased employment in the manufacturing and service industries. This paper explores the relationship between variations in the industrial structure of nonmetropolitan counties in the United States and several family structure variables. It was found that counties with larger proportions ...
