Synopsis: History, sociology, anthropology and public policy combine to deliver the encyclopedia that has become the standard reference work in American rural studies. From irrigation and marriage to games and mental health, this encyclopedia is the most comprehens

From Booklist: The Encyclopedia of Rural America was well received when first published in 1997. To say that a great deal has happened since then that affects rural life and culture is one of those vast understatements that hardly require mentioning. The introduction points out some of the changes from the first edition. There is a new section of primary documents consisting of articles, speeches, and book chapters. More than 73 entries are completely new, and others have been updated. The volumes have standard encyclopedia characteristics, with signed articles with bibliographies and see also references, a comprehensive index, and contributors drawn from a wide range of places and fields. Other features include a time line of important events and a lengthy bibliography that is independent of those that follow the entries. One oddity is several pages of advertisements for books by this publisher after the index but before a series of maps displaying data on rural issues. A new topic that receives major focus in this edition is Disaster preparedness and mitigation, with related articles on Department of Homeland Security and rural America, Emergency management professionals, and Terrorism. Another is Substance abuse, with a related article on Methamphetamine use, which is more of an issue in rural than urban environments. Coverage of Migrant agricultural workers has been updated to reflect changes in ethnic groups and in the laws that govern workers. Other new or dramatically updated entries are Organic farming; Solar energy; Tourism, ecotourism; and Wind energy. Migration now covers migration into as well as out of rural areas. As was the case when this source first appeared, there is little else readily available on this topic. The information is relevant to researchers in both urban and rural libraries. Recommended for academic and large public libraries. --Danise Hoover
