Recommended Posts

To understand the most important characteristics of a society, one must study its major cities.

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position.


A society is formed by urban, sub-urban and rural areas. Each of these have there own contributions towards the society. 

The characteristics of a society can never be measured only from urban areas because the various characteristics of a society are distributed differently among different areas. To understand the important aspect of the culture of a society one often needs to find it in rural areas as in urban areas their will be a amalgam of cultures as people from different societies come and live there. To know the population index of a society, the overall population of the society and density in each area best justifies the study instead of studying just its major cities where it is densely populated.

Lifestyle of a society is also an important characteristic of a society. To understand the lifestyle of a society one needs to study all the areas to understand the changes in lifestyle. But there are certain important aspects of a society which can be studied from its major cities. For example, economy of a society can best be studied from its major cities. Even then if the societies main economy is agriculture this condition holds false.

An important characteristic of a society can best be studied by considering all the areas of the society as each and every area of a society plays its unique role in forming a society. The result of the study of a characteristic should give idea of an entire society rather than just its urban areas.
