Preface

This book covers the following papers presented at Undergraduate and Post Graduate levels in Sociology in Indian Universities :

Indian Society, Indian Society and Culture, Indian Society and Social Institutions, Social Change in India, Indian Social Institutions and Contemporary Indian Society and Culture.

Based on latest published material the book includes latest data on every subject. While the subject has been presented in an analytical style with central, side and running headings, integral and holistic view has been adopted, in matters having different opinions. The language is easy and free of technical jargon as far as possible. At the end of each chapter, questions actually asked at University examinations have been given for preparation for examination. Thus, the author has tried to present an ideal textbook on the subject.

Starting with characteristics of Indian Society, the book deals with Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Rural, Tribal and Urban social systems and institutions. It describes major Religious Groups in India. After summarization of social changes in India it discusses various trends in contemporary social changes such as Industrialization, Urbanization, Labour Problems, Secularization, Tradition and Modernity, Sanskritization, Westernization, Modernization, Politicization and Democratisation. In the end, it points out need and methods of realisation of national and emotional integration in India.

Thus, the author has tried to solve the student's problems of what, how and why about the subject. However, suggestions for improvement are most cordially invited for further improvement.
