Description


This insightful volume examines the structure, culture, process, and dialectics in post-independent India. From a broad theoretical and empirical perspective, the contributions analyze issues related to India's social stratification, mobility, village community, urban life, tribal and peasant movements, gender relations, etc. The contours and dynamics of Indian society in relation to caste, class, and power hierarchies are discussed to ascertain the relative role played by the structural and cultural factors. Eminent sociology scholars, colleagues, and students of Professor K.L. Sharma have contributed to this festschrift in his honor.
