Elizabeth Currid-Halkett on the 'The Overlooked Americans'
Just 14 percent of Americans live in rural areas. How can the rest of us living in cities and the suburbs relate to our rural counterparts?
The latest book by Elizabeth Currid-Halkett, a University of Southern California public policy professor, tries to answer that question.
Through surveys, demographic data, and personal interviews, “The Overlooked Americans: The Resilience of Rural Towns and What It Means for Our Country” analyzes the complex views and identities of rural Americans.
