Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

A result of almost three decades of research, this is a highly readable account of the people and families of an isolated mountain locality in eastern Kentucky as they struggled to adapt to the increasingly dismal economic and social conditions of Appalachia. Focusing with rare insight and compassion upon the families which finally moved from their subsistence-farming localities, this study details how they made the move and how they fared in the large industrial centers to the north. Mountain Families in Transition is a model study of the many ramifications, the intricacies, and the problems involved in the urban relocation of a mountain people long isolated from the mainstream of American society. In many ways this classic in the literature of sociology parallels accounts of the immigrant groups in America at the turn of the century.
