Reflection Questions
  • How have colonial and national policies influenced change among rural peoples? Give examples.

  • When cross-cultural development workers deliberately focus their efforts on only a few specific aspects of the culture in which they are introducing change, should we expect major changes throughout much of the culture? Cite examples.

  • Compare the effect of modernization and change on the role of women and men in rural populations of the Third World.
