Editorial Reviews

Review

“This excellent collection examines the impact of the 1980s farm crisis on family stability. The Iowa Youth and Family Project interviewed four members from each of 451 selected rural families in north-central Iowa. Using a "family stress model" that effectively integrates structural and social psychological variables, the papers explore how economic hardship disrupts the lives and emotions of family members within one of three broad areas--economic changes in rural families and communities, marital relations, and parenting. Many of the findings parallel similar research from the Depression. The project discovered that the crisis rippled throughout the region, affecting not only those families losing their farms but also nonfarm families in farming-dependent communities... The implications for all families, rural or urban, required to adapt to economic restructuring are significant. Upper-division undergraduates and above.”

—W. P. Anderson Jr., Choice
