Op weg naar een nieuw cultuurpatroon : studie van de reactie op het moderne cultuurpatroon in de Dokkumer wouden

R. Bergsma

Research output: Thesisinternal PhD, WU


Bergsma made a sociological inquiry into the nature of the many rural changes and the factors promoting or retarding them. Rural culture in the Dokkumer Wouden did not change fragmentarily but the social changes formed a pattern. Multivariate analysis yielded a measure of the acceptance of the modern pattern of culture. On this basis important factors which influenced progressiveness, were age, farm size, the influence of local and religious groups, and the role of local leaders. The author examined the interrelations of these five factors.
