Description
This textbook meets adequately the specific needs of Indian undergraduate students. The book is divided into two parts. Part one is a concise introduction to sociology as a science and craft, basic sociological concepts and prominent theories. Part two is focused on Indian social reality. The book devotes attention not only to competing theories and differing perspectives but also to the complex character of social reality. The scope and the analytical tenor of the book make it a valuable aid to understand sociology, in general and Indian society, in particular.
