Rural sociology focuses on how rural people and communities are socially, culturally, politically, and economically organized. As a discipline, it has a distinct body of knowledge, specific. Rural transformation is defined as a process of change in rural areas, which depends on many factors and dynamics; the challenges and opportunities of rural transformation derive from rural-urban linkages and depend on many sectors inside and outside of agriculture.

The book contains contributions on technical and social and environmental solutions for implementing urban transformations. A benefit for the audience is easy access to research which has been realized in a broad array of disciplines and to widen the view on possible paths for sustainable urban transformations. Urban Transformations by Daniel P. Donoghue, , Taylor & Francis Group edition, in English.
