American scholars and social service professionals have contributed articles covering a diverse range of topics, such as health care, social services, education, and sustainable community development, that reflect the changing needs of America's small rural communities. The articles, most of which include case- studies, cover a variety of issues facing rural towns, including corporate take-overs of family farms, racial and ethnic tensions, and the complexity of service delivery in rural areas. One section focuses strictly on exemplary services and programs, providing readers with seven examples of what works, while the concluding section discusses the educational and training needs of rural social workers.
