Saroj Kumar Jena (Author)
Synopsis With the broad aim of catering to the fundamental necessity of the beginners in the discipline, the book goes deeper into the socio-political variables that shapes the kaleidoscopic map of the discipline and provides a new vista in the field of political analysis. The book contains ten chapters in to which are more or less self contained in themselves and complementary in character, giving strength to one another by supplementing the missing number. The concept of political sociology, the emergence of the discipline, its difference from politics, sociology and sociology of politics, the seminal contributions, approaches, nature, scope of the discipline—all have been dealt exhaustively in the first chapter in order to make the students know certain elementary concepts. While chapter two, makes an aerial survey of the political system. Chapter three focuses its attention on structural functionalism. The fourth chapter tries to assimilate certain politological aspects in political sociology such as power, authority, legitimacy, leadership etc. On the same line chapter five enlists a set of sociological aspects like caste, class and tribe and their impact on organised politics. The sixth chapter delineates in great details political culture and its role in societal structure.
