Kline 10

yes, farm life did become urbanized, but it wasn't a smooth process to get there

rural people picked and chose what they wanted from modernity in values as well as in technology

An excellent summary point from a student: "Kline reiterates that Consumers All was wrong in saying that technologies were powerful irresistible social forces since farmers were selective with technology and created their own individual modernities."

the REA was abolished in 1994
was government intervention really needed?

(also from a student) What would the ruralization of urban life look like?
