Sociology and Social Anthropology in India

Yogesh Atal (Editor)
Synopsis A set of about a dozen of studies and surveys, specially commissioned by ICSSR (Indian Council of Social Science Research), this book encapsulates the progress of research in certain neglected segments in the social sciences. The survey begins with an examination of the historical background of tribes, rural and agrarian studies, political sociology, and urban sociology. It proceeds to study the role of caste and caste organisations in local and national politics, the organisational structure of industries, the journey of women's studies in India, demographic trends since 1971 and the socio-cultural and political dynamics of the Indian diaspora. Finally, the survey provides a detailed analysis of criminological and development studies, and the notable and sociologically relevant aspects of the emerged legal culture. The coverage of disciplines in this volume makes it an indispensable resource book, and the primary source of understanding the nature and direction of research in sociology and social anthropology in India.
