Sociology of Gender: The Challenge of Feminist Sociological Knowledge
Sociology of Gender: The Challenge of Feminist Sociological Knowledge
Description
From the Jacket:

Rigorous feminist critique of sociological theories and paradigms has, in recent years, raised new questions, broadened the frontiers of sociological knowledge and established gender as a conceptual category. Simultaneously, new developments within feminist scholarship have given rise to fresh explorations, which have strengthened and expanded the boundaries of feminist knowledge.

Exploring these twin developments, this invaluable reader maps the contributions made by feminist scholars towards engendering mainstream sociological discourse in India. It covers a broad range of issues relating to the lifespan of women in different social institutions such as the family, school and the workplace.

The 14 articles are grouped in two parts. The first part is devoted to conceptual issues in feminism, anthropology and sociology and themes in feminist social theories. The second part is divided into four sections which cover diverse issues in the areas of work, family, kinship, caste, education and the state. Among the themes discussed are:

  • Matriliny, migration and women's economic status.
  • Female participation in farm work and in suburban production work.
  • Gender issues in the education of young girls and in the reproduction of social inequality in schooling.
  • Gender in the making of the Indian nation-state and in caste discrimination.
Located at the intersection of sociology and feminist studies and bringing together articles which reflect the different intellectual streams that comprise feminist sociological knowledge in India, this timely volume will serve as a text for courses on sociology and women's studies.

Testimonials
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
