Family, Kinship and Marriage in India

Patricia Uberoi (Editor)
Synopsis Family, Kinship and Marriage in India attempts to capture the great variety of family types and kinship practices found in the South Asia region. Several theoretical formulations which posit an underlying unity in this variety, and some sophisticated new analyses of family and kinship are presented in an accessible form. Offering the best recent work as well as some celebrated classic writings, the readings also try to integrate a concern for gender issues into the study of Indian family and kinship.
