The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science
The New Rural-Urban Interface



July 2017 | 96 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Published in Association with American Academy of Political and Social Science

With the increasing urbanization of the United States, big city issues and interests have come to characterize and influence many key policy and political issues, while the rest of the country—rural and small-town America—is often forgotten. With the election of Donald Trump as the 45th U.S. president, however, rural America has made its presence known.

This volume of The ANNALS explores the interface between rural and urban America—how these areas are both divided and tightly integrated and interdependent. The volume focuses on the cultural, economic, demographic, and political dimensions of changing social and spatial boundaries that both separate and link urban and rural America.
