Planned development has led to relatively rapid changes in rural Turkey. Based on field research in Turkey, this report examines and describes some of the changes which occurred when an unplanned disruptive natural force confronted a rural area of a developing country. Detailed relative change over a three-year period between a village damaged by the 1970 Gediz earthquake and an undamaged village in the same region is analyzed, followed by an interpretation of surrogates of change from a group of thirty-four earthquake damaged villages and thirteen undamaged control villages.
