Asked 1st Dec, 2013

Can anyone recommend a human ecology book or article that tracks the urban-rural relationships as center-periphery over time?

I want to explain why integration into the formal economy results in food scarcity in the Amazon when the rural poor are converted into semi-urban poor. I'd be especially interested in a study that compares rural settlements independent of urban centers, vs. rural settlements that were drawn into feudalistic relationships with the state. I know there's stuff out there but I haven't studied biology since the 90s and I'm rusty.
