In response to the correspondent asking about studies of personal networks
in small towns, I immediately thinking of Claude Fischer's classic 1982
book, _To Dwell Among Friends._
Mike Stern, Oklahoma State Sociology is doing such work now, and has
published some articles. You can hear him at the rural sociology meetings
in Manchester NH before the ASAs, July 30?
And Jessica Collins and I will be on the same session, plus Jess is giving
a paper at the ASAs. We're studying Chapleau, in northern Ontario.
However, we don't have a circulatable paper yet.
Yup, Barry from the Bronx has gone rural (but only in part)
PS: There's probably more that we don't know about, but a lit search a
year ago on Web of Science and Scholar.Google wasn't promising.
