Summary

Blind, jazz-soul musician Ray Charles is an urban black man. But when he published the album Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music, a decade before Watergate, he displayed a profound clarity of vision. The album's success forewarned a watershed of cultural values that would broadcast a clear message to an urban nation: Come back to rural America. The paucity of research on rural politics sets the direction of this volume in several ways. The book is developed into two parts. The first part treats the nation as a whole, describing and analyzing (1) the socioeconomic characteristics of those who populate the rural areas of America, with some comparison with the same characteristics of urban dwellers; (2) the political views and behavior of rural dwellers in juxtaposition to their urban cousins
