Indian Families at the Crossroads: Preparing Families for the New Millennium

Aparajita Chowdhury (Editor) David K. Carson (Editor) Cecyle K. Carson (Editor)
Synopsis Today's Indian families are indeed at a crossroads.  On the one hand, many families have found a way to stay close and resilient during these times of rapid social-economic and political change.  On the other hand, Indian families are encountering new and disturbing problems that are putting them at risk for a host of bio-psychosocial problems.  This book examines both sides of the "crossroads" as it addresses many of the pressing and controversial issues in contemporary Indian society and its place in the modern world, as well as factors that threaten the structure and well-being of the Indian family system.  However, unlike other books, which primarily emphasized social ills and the negative aspects of family life, this book presents a balanced view of Indian cultural and family strengths and vulnerabilities.  The editors discuss potential solutions to complex problems on both local/community and national levels.  Readers will be left with a greater understanding of the richness and diversity of the Indian family as it remains the backbone of the world’s largest democracy.  It is the editors hope that each chapter will shed new light on how working professionals and concerned citizens can better prepare families for the unparalleled challenges of today and tomorrow, as well as assist families (rural and urban) which are already in the quagmire.
