Beyond the Village: Sociological Explorations
Description
About the Book:

The fifteenth volume of Transactions-and the workshop in April 1970 which led up to it-constitute new departures for the Indian Institute Of Advanced Study.

At its core are four major studies. Yogesh Atal sketches the behind-the-scenes considerations for his recently published study of the relationship between communication links and political participation. T. N. Madan examines the culture of the medical profession in two North Indian towns. Satish Saberwal explores the processes of urban social mobility at different points in the cast hierarchy in the Punjab, and Yogendra Singh analyses the academics' perceptions of their own role structure and of modernization.

Each study is concerned with a significant dimension of emergent India and each breaks new ground in methods and concepts. Considered critiques from the workshop participants appear with each paper, and M. S. Gore assesses the entire volume critically in his Introduction.

An important leap forward in the sociology of India.
