"The changing nature of life in Canadian rural communities is more than a simple response to economic conditions. People who live in rural places are part of a new social agenda characterized by the transformation of landscapes, livelihoods, and social relations. These profound changes invite us to reconsider the meanings of community, culture, and citizenship. In Social Transformation in Rural Canada, researchers from a variety of fields reconsider the meaning of cojmmunity, culture, and citizenship as they explore social transformation in rural settlements throughout the country. Taken together, these essays generate a nuanced portrait of how local forms of action, adaptation, identity, and imagination are reshaping both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities. This innovative volume presents rural communities not simply as places affected by external forces but also as agents of their own destinies and incubators of change."--back cover.
