9781330272251: Introduction to Rural Sociology (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Introduction to Rural Sociology

The following pages have been written in the hope that they might contribute something toward the effort now being made by humanity, particularly in the Western world, to gain control of the conditions of existence in the interest of the common welfare. The application of the principles of social science during the past fifty years to specific problems of human relationships has demonstrated that it is possible for humanity, through a better understanding of the conditions of human existence and of the forces operating in human relationships, to control those conditions and forces in such a manner as to yield a larger measure of human welfare. That there are principles of efficiency in personal conduct has long been recognized. That the efficiency of limited groups, such as business organizations, is dependent upon the operation of well-defined principles, which may be discovered and applied, is no longer questioned. It has been a logical step to accept the belief that the efficiency of the life of the group at large is also subject to the presence or absence of well defined principles. This last step is the basis for the earnest effort now being made by students of social phenomena to develop a science which will enable human beings to so order their social relationships as to secure a maximum of common welfare with a minimum of waste of social energy through maladjustment of their organized life to community needs.

The widely increased interest in the sociology of the small community during the past few years is the expression of a definitely felt need of a better understanding of the problems of efficient living in those communities. The drift to the cities from both rural and village groups, which is characteristic of all the Western world, is based upon conditions which must be understood if they are to be adequately controlled.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Introduction to Rural Sociology The practical value of modern attempts to reduce the laws of social organization to a scientific basis has been so thor oughly demonstrated that it no longer needs discussion. Inter est in problems of social organization and effort to understand and solve them have continued to increase as recognition of the value of such effort has grown. Such applied problems as those of the causes and relief of poverty, the adjustment of labor conditions, the equitable distribution of wealth, the social control of the growth of cities and the administration of ai fairs oi state in the larger units, have long received attention. The more recent interest in problems of rural and village life is but an expression of the broadening social point of view, and of the recognition of the fact that human society is, so far as the modern world is concerned, a unity, and that an under standing of rural problems is not only necessary for the sake of the country community but is also necessary as a basis for the explanation of many urban social problems.
