  Not too many decades ago it seemed “obvious” both to the general public and to sociologists that modern society has changed people’s natural relations, loosed their responsibilities __1

  to kins (亲戚) and neighbors, and substituted in their place __2

  for superficial relationships with passing acquaintances. __3

  However, in recent years a growing body of research has revealed that the “obvious” is not true. It seems that if you are a city resident, you typically know a smaller proportion of your neighbors than you if you are a resident of a smaller community. __4

  But, for the most part, this fact has a few significant consequences. __5

  It does not necessarily follow that if you know few of your neighbors you will know no one else.
  Even in very large cities, people maintain close social ties within small, private social worlds. Indeed, the number and quality of meaningful relationship do not differ between more and less urban __6

  people. Small-town residents are more involved with kin than do big __7

  city residents. Yet city dwellers compensate by developing friendships with people who share similar interests and activities. Urbanism may produce a different style of life, but the quality of life does not differ between town and city. Or are residents of large communities __8

  any likely to display psychological symptoms of stress or alienation __9

  than are residents of smaller communities. However, city dwellers do worry more about crime, and this leads them to a distrust for strangers. __10
