Encyclopedia of Social Welfare (In 3 Volumes)

Anand Sirohi (Author)
Synopsis The present three-volume publication focuses on the structure and systems in place for the administration of all social welfare programmes in India. It provides a comprehensive overview of the entire range of social welfare schemes, institutions, modalities, policies, parameters and machinery involved in the activities, from the earliest times to the present day. In carefully structured information, it covers theory and concept, and practice for the beneficiaries. While the volumes together will undoubtedly prove to be valuable basic material for all research scholars, sociologists, social workers and policy-makers, the individual volumes will be of particular interest in view of the specific subjects they cover. Of special interest is the volume on underprivileged and marginal communities, including tribes, minorities, child labour and sex workers. The categorization of measures for the welfare of youth, children, elderly, handicapped, ex-servicemen and ex-prisoners will be of much use to concerned groups. The role of voluntary organizations and an international perspective are also valuable features.
