Summary
  • "This book is an analysis of the social experiences of country people. It attempts to bring together such psychological knowledge as at the present time is likely to prove useful in an understanding of the problems of rural life. It especially draws material from the rapidly developing social psychology. Although in the process of being made, social psychology already has established regarding the conduct of men and women facts and principles of great value in the interpretation of the rural environment"--Chapter.

  • "This book attempts to analyze in detail the rural social mind for the purpose of emphasizing its significance in our national life. Rural people have a greater social function than merely to grow food for city dwellers. They also contribute to modern society attitudes of mind of indispensable value. Not that country people are inherently different from city people. Living in a different environment they naturally develop characteristic habits of mind. National' welfare needs their social influence, and for that reason the problem of rural prosperity is a matter of concern to all our people. Fortunately this fact is beginning to be recognized by all thoughtful leaders of public policies. The increasing attention which everywhere in the United States is being given to rural matters is based upon neither sentimental nor class interests. It does not represent selfish sectionalism. Rural welfare, on the contrary, is of national concern because it influences for good the country as a whole. The psychic contribution of the farming population is indispensable in our social life, for it provides mental qualities which urban people largely lack. As our civilization grows more urban we need 'all the more to appreciate the social value of rural experience"--Preface
