Dalits and Social Marginalisation
J. Bheemaiah
This book is suffused with intellectual contributions made by scholars and university teachers on varied themes relating to socio- economic, political, cultural and linguistic issues facing the marginalized groups including dalits, women, tribals and other underprivileged sections of Indian society. It theorizes how the majority people have been oppressed, marginalized and even othered by the dominant upper caste few for centuries; it also examines how the underprivileged have been systematically deprived of their equal rights to the legitimate enjoyment of natural resources available in India. The volume focuses on the holistic issues of caste rigidity/discrimination, religious prejudice and the vertical structure of the existing society highly inflated with institutionalized unequal human relations camouflaged as an ideal Hindu society within the Indian Nation. The book opens an interesting debate on the minority rights and multiculturalism. Drawing on the dalit space in media which has been used to the extent for the political interest of the hegemonic class, one of the papers castigates the biased nature of the upper castes towards the dalit cause. The politics of media and the way it is reflecting on the oppressed and also other important social dimensions have been thrashed out at length in the book. ..more

Unconscious Cast(e) and Dalit Writings
V. SehgalS. Sehgal
Dalit writers say the emergence of low-caste literature has taken place alongside a broader growth of consciousness and activism, particularly in urban India. While in rural India, caste remains all-pervading, in cities many of the signs and signals that identify a person’s caste have vanished. In cities, too, Dalits are better organised to stand up for their rights. Dalit literature represents a powerful, emerging trend in the Indian literary scene. Given its overarching preoccupations with the location of Dalits in the caste-based Hindu society, and their struggles for dignity, justice and equality, this literature is by nature oppositional. With the growing translation of works by Dalit writers from various regional languages into English, Dalit literature is poised to acquire a national and an international presence as well as to pose a major challenge to the established notions of what constitutes literature and how we read it. Sehgals’s Unconscious Cast[e] and Dalit Writings is a provocative and thoughtful account of the debates among Dalit writers on how Dalit literature should be read. In this book, authors explore several crucial questions: What is Dalit literature? What are its concerns and features? What aesthetic considerations should be taken into account in interpreting Dalit writing? Is it appropriate to apply to Dalit literature the criteria used in assessing the work of non-Dalit writers generally and high-caste Hindu writers in particular? Who is a Dalit, anyway? ..more

Female Foeticide
D.K. DixitT. Sharma
“There will be no generation of great men untill there has been a generation of free women of free mothers”. In Indian society, female foeticide has emerged as a burning social problem during the last few years. The girl child in India is treated right from her birth as an additional burden, an extra mouth to feed, aliability and another man’s property. The increasing imbalance between men and women is leading to many crimes. Women who constitute half a human population have been discriminated, harassed and exploited. In our country a girl is worshiped as a Devi on one hand and denied his existence on the other as if she has no right to live. Time has perhaps come for us to get rid to male enauvinism and treat children as gift of nature regardless of their gender. It is warned to those who prefer male child over female child, just for the sake of continuace of their family. There is not far off when their son will have to remain unmarried as they would not find brides. Girl child and women in India are the most vulnerable to discrimination and deprivation. The general thinking of parents is they expect sons but not daughters to provide financial and emotional care, especially in their old age, sons add to family wealth and property while daughters droin it through dowries. Son continue the family lineage while daughters are married away to another household. Son perform important Religious roles, and sons defend and exercise the family’s power while daughters have to be defended and protected creating a perceived burden on the household. The advancement of medical technology changed the fate of unborn child and posed threat to its life, particularly to the life of female child in the form of foetus. The papers presented in this book explain the problem of female foeticide in India. This book makes a path breaking contribution in this direction. It shows the major issues which highlight the problem of female foeticide. This book will be highly useful to the students of sociology, medical, family counsellor and all those persons dealing with the problem of female child. ..more

Mahendra S.BhairamkarV.G. Patil

Child Labour : Dimensions & Determinations
N. Shukla
“Children are mirror, who reflect the future image of a nation. If anybody wants to see the nation he should see its children. If the children grows up properly then the nation will also grow up and if the exploitation of children was there then the nation will go in doom.” Child labour is a global problem. It is multi-dimensional and multi-layered in nature. The phenomenon of child labour, like all other social phenomena, is historically and socio-economic conditioned. It is related to multiple issues and situations. It is both a cause and consequence of vulnerabilities— poverty, illiteracy and livelihood loss. Its emergence, growth and nature of dynamics are intrinsically bound with the changing trends in production and reproduction of a social matrix. Child labour has become a common feature of any third world countries to which India is not an exception and despite adequate efforts in the direction of relief and rehabilitation, the problem continues to grow in an alarming proportion. If child labour is to be eradicated, the governments and agencies and those responsible for enforcement need to start doing their jobs. It is hoped that the volume will highly useful for students and scholars, academicians, professors, administrators, Social workers and NGOs, planners and policy makers.

Leadership, Poverty and Social Security
T. Ramaswamy
This book highlights the role of leadership in eliminating poverty. The focus is on the Indian scene. The underlying theme of the book is very well summarized in the statement made by an eminent jurist who was Indian Ambassador to the United States of America decades ago. According to him, the credit for the achievement of keeping India a poor country, despite its huge production and vast potential goes to its politicians. The spirit of democracy has been put to shame by our elected representatives who form a floating population of power seekers, power holders and power brokers. But India has survived all this because of it tremendous endurance capacity. These words are confirmed by the behavior of several members of the Parliament and legislatures seen through Television channels. The deficiencies in leadership and their impact on poverty are discussed in the early chapters of the book. In later chapters a remedy is suggested through improving the quality of leadership. The concept of power management and its relevance to poverty abolition finds detailed discussion. The role of development leadership is stressed and a strategy for rural development is mentioned in brief. The need for motivation, character development and encouraging talent for poverty alleviation is highlighted in separate chapters. Finally an example of action taken by the Sri Lankan government for poverty alleviation with some degree of success is stated in the Appendix. A lasting solution to the problem lies in high quality leadership at all levels. ..more

D. K. NarangN. ChhabraK. Koradia
The basic approach of this book has been shaped by our own research, professional and personal experience as teachers and researchers. We aimed for a text that includes complexities of adolescent age intervention which will be relevant and useful in bridging a gap between theory and research on adolescent’s lives.

The need for parents, caretakers, teachers, who can integrate nature and education, using adolescent’s knowledge and perception as the integrators is also highlighted. The text focuses on the awareness needs of adolescents for their reproductive health. Expanded and updated discussions on the sexual issues, rights, current research studies on the impact of intervention on the knowledge and perception have been dealt. The intervention package is prepared which is suitable to the immediate environment, culture, education and age of adolescent girls.

Crime Against Women
R. A. P. Singh
In the men’s world women have exclusive existence. But this is a new perception. And the exclusive space is not only claimed, it is being acquired. Post-Modernity notion of equity is at the top of the feminist agenda. Apart from this equity programming, our concern is not less important if we take in to account which is popularly known as crime against women. Is it different from crime against men? Men commit crime against men but men look at women as a soft target, not only outside home and beyond, no wonder within home itself. Women are exploited intimately. This book addresses macro sensitivity plus micro manifestation. With crime perspective the book is based on integral approach moving simultaneously towards rural and urban regions, higher and lower segments of women; those enjoying campus and those working in the field, those who are working in the office and those who are house-wives, those who are wage workers, those who are daughters and those who are daughter-in-laws. This provides ample raw data and direction for fresh research. ..more

Rural Women and Their Quality of Life
S. Bhattacharjee
There is no absolute standard of living that is universally accepted although the people living in western capitalist societies are often considered to enjoy a higher quality of life. “Quality of life”, however, varies in time, space and culture. What is better in one culture may not be so in another. People’s desires, expectations in material and economic life as well as preceptions of good life vary across cultures. Good health, wealth, high political power and education may not always be the only criteria for a better “quality of life”. Prevailing social norms, cultural ideologies, and personal values may also influence an individual’s “quality of life”. This book, “Rural Women and their Quality of Life” is a comprehensive and most valuable document on the subject. An empirical investigation into the life-situations of rural women belonging to the different communities viz. Caste Hindus, Muslims and Santals with distinct socio-cultural practices and ideologies; and critical notes on their “quality of life” in objective as well as subjective terms have been presented in this publication. The power, priviledges and autonomy that the women enjoy in the public domain are, however, used not to form a separate world of women but to reinforce their community life. The world of women of all the communities in the villages mentioned in this book is primarily centred around their household, family and lineage. This publication will serve the interest of teachers, researchers, students of sociology; as well as administrators, planners and social workers." ..more

Social Work With Children
M. R. Kamble
The emphasis and inititative in social work is increasingly on a greater community orientation. For social workers this means an increasing amount of group work, and a completely new set of challenging problems. A clear underlying assumption of the book is that social work practice with children is a very difficult and complex undertaking. Social work in any one specific setting requires knowledge about the other major settings, or service systems, because children and families cross many systems, often in a fragmented manner. Often social workers are called upon to help children and families, negotiate the complex maze of programs and services. Essential knowledge includes the history and purpose, guiding policies, available services, and most effective intervention strategies for each specific setting. Social workers need to be familiar with the language and jargon of each system, and with the roles that various professionals fulfill in each system. The chapters include: • Introduction • Pragmatic Perspective in Social Work • Social Work in Child Welfare • Supporting Families and their Children • Working Together to Protect Children • Risks and Vulnerabilities in Social Work with Children • Protecting Children and Supporting Families • Future Trends in Social Work with Children and Families • Bibliography • Index Students and researchers working in the field of social work and child studies will find this book a useful aid. ..more

Indian Widows : Coping Style, Mental Health and Personal Adjustment
Manju MehtaUsha KulshreshtaRashmi Chowdhry
Bereavement, especially the loss of spouse, has a severe impact on the psychological and social well-being of women. Loss of spouse has a strong impact on their personal and social adjustment, health, and life satisfaction. In the Indian social scenario, where widows are excluded from full participation in society and have to perform many rituals, the condition of widows becomes all the more miserable. The upliftment of widows is one of the priority areas under women empowerment for both governmental and social agencies. In such a scenario, to understand the psycho-dynamics of widowhood is of great importance. The present book is an attempt in this direction with special focus on middle aged educated widows, a relatively less attended section of widows. An attempt is made to see the effect of widowhood on repression-sensitisation tendency, ways of coping, mental health, and personal adjustment. The book also includes a research study to narrate the effects, scientifically, on working as well as non-working widows. An effort is being made to compare working and non-working married women. The book provides some valuable hints for social planners and policy makers for developing strategies and tactics for helping widows in their readjustment. It is useful for counselors, family members, well-wishers and all those who are concerned with the welfare and upliftment of widows. ..more

H. C. Upreti
The book primarily deals with the tribal social structure and the changes occurring there in. India has a large concentration of tribal population. Though scattered all over the country their concentration is mainly in the Northern and Central region. Originally they lived at unapproachable places where the land was infertile with limited means of living resources. They were simple, poor, and backward. Their economic hardships and encounter with the non-tribal at times made them violent, criminal, and rebellious. After Independence Several efforts have been made through Five year plans and reservation policy etc. for their social and economic emancipation yet after more than five decades they have not been able to come at par with the rest of the society.

Gandhism : A Vision for Peace
Satiish ChaturvediRajesh Shukla
The present book evaluates tenets of Gandhian philosophy in relation to contemporary social realities. Globalised scenario has made impact and caused multifaceted effect on Indian social fabric. After over six decades of independence, the Indian socio-political scene and economic realities have undergone a lot of change, but one aspect which has remained unchanged is the utility and relevance of Gandhian philosophy, thought and ideas. Whatever be the changes, the Gandhian aspects of livelihood and social reality are of basic importance even today, and would, in all likelihood remain so in the decades and centuries to come. Gandhiji belived and preached for peace and harmony in society and experimented with the truth and morality of life. The research papers cover majority of social aspects of common man’s life from education, aesthetics, foreign affairs, social peace, international affairs, social justice etc. The contributors have analysed the problems from various angles and evaluated the feasibility of remedial means to overcome and solve these problems. Their evaluation proves the utility and pin points that the relevance of Gandhi is more pertinent in the contemporary globalised social scenario than it was during forties, fiftees and sixtees. Gandhian ideals would nurture and strengthen the social fabric and pave the way for peace in society and the world. ..more

Women and Leadership
N. Kulkarni
Despite being relegated to the background since time immemorial, women have often broken the barriers of male domination and attained leadership positions on the basis of their own merit and determination. Yet, studies on the trends and factors that enabled them to do so were neglected. Gender bias took the upper hand and in-depth research on their leadership roles was ignored. Many reasons were attributed to the lack of research in this field of female human endeavour. This book takes up the entire spectrum of women and the leadership roles they have performed, sometimes with commendable results, in different parts of the world. Their struggles to reach the top, the hurdles they had to cross and the obstacles that were put in their way have been delineated with clarity and in simple, easy-to-understand language. The various fields that they have conquered and the important roles that they now play in what was exclusively the male domain are explained and discussed in full detail. The chapters have been chosen with care to ensure that as wide a perspective is placed before the reader. They include: ¨ Women and Leadership ¨ Gender, Leadership and Legislatures ¨ Components of Integrative Leadership ¨ Constraints of Leadership ¨ Vision of Integrative Leadership ¨ Origins of Different Committee Styles ¨ Women as Journalists ¨ Feminists and Feminism in the News ¨ Vision of Leadership in Traditional & Feminine Approaches ¨ Leadership Secrets of Elizabeth I ¨ Women Leadership in Asia This book will be of definite interest to all those interested in the development of women down the ages and teachers, students and researchers in women’s studies. ..more

Women in World Journalism
M.L. Jena
News media produced by, for and about women have long been crucial mechanisms by which women can define the alternative visions of womanhood and cultivate new socio-political landscapes. Alternative news media advocated versions of women’s social, political, and cultural roles that were quite different from those proposed by or imposed by mainstream media. Such media have enabled women to exchange and share news unlikely to find a home in mainstream media institutions and to develop journalistic and media skills. This book describes the entry of women into journalism, their struggles to gain equality and their determined efforts to ensure that their voice too was heard. Women journalists all over the world more or less face the same kind of problem initially-the resistance to their entry by their male colleagues. The chapters indicate the status of women journalists today and how they attained it. • Women Journalists • Problems of Women Journalists • Women and Newsroom Values • Women’s Ideas in the Media • Women in Print Journalism • Women Journalists and the Gender Tag • Shattering the Glass Ceiling • Women Reporters in Wartime • New Trends in Media: Impact on Women • Women in Broadcasting and the Net • Women in the Media The book will be useful for students, teachers and researchers in journalism and all other dimensions of the mass media and mass communications. ..more

Women in Developing Countries
P. Iyer
It is an established fact that women are biologically stronger than their male counterparts enabling them to enjoy a higher life expectancy. This is seen in the statistics of the developed world where the sex differential is nearly seven years. However, in developing countries the health status of women is not so bright and the differential can be as low as two years and sometimes even in the minus. The reason for this is mainly their high rates of mortality in childhood and at child-bearing ages. Social customs and tradition places them at a lower level than males; in some countries they eat only when the men and boys have finished. Female mortality rates in some of the developing countries can be higher than 30 to 50 per cent of males. This book discusses the status and living conditions of women in developing countries in all its aspects and dimensions and provides a clear picture of the miseries they have to endure because of their sex. The chapters include: · Women and Work in Developing Nations · Women, Technology and the Development Process · Women’s Nutrition through the Life Cycle · Violence Against Women · Women’s Mental Health · Indian Women’s Participation in Science and Engineering · Women’s Struggles in Bangladesh · Women in Pakistan · Women’s Movement in the Philippines · Women’s Movement in Kenya · Women and Technology Resources for Future ..more

Child Abuse
M. G. Pillai
A very important boon of the communication explosion as created by TV and other mass media is the awareness of the existence of child abuse on a large scale and the need to control and remedy it at the earliest to enable a child victim to grow up normally and without any neuroses and traumas that would not only affect his relationships with family and friends but also at the workplace. This book has been prepared with this awareness in view. Since child victims do not generally admit the abuse perpetrated on them or complain (the reasons are many) special effort has been made to investigate and explain the symptoms that could reveal the burden that a child is carrying in his mental framework. Chapters have been included to help in identifying the symptoms and also the remedial measures that can be taken to cure child victims of ‘faults’ they are not responsible for. Attention has also been paid to point out the preventive steps that should be taken while rearing children to ensure that they are not subjected to abuse of any kind-either from within the home or outside. It is with this aspect in mind and the need to not only identify the problem, but cure it when it exists, and preferably prevent it before it happens, that this book has been written. Its lucid and clear-cut chapters cover many myriad aspects. The contents include what is Child Abuse; Features of Sexual Abusers: Signs and Symptoms of Child Abuse; Sexual Coercion of the Child: Sexual Harassment: Prostitutes in Society: CO-operation with Parents: Working with Children: Play Therapy with Abused Children and Adolescents: and Helping to Prevent Abuse. Parents, teachers, counselors and all those connected with the handling of growing children will find this book useful in more ways than one. ..more

Violence Against Children
J. D. Patel
Child abuse and violence against children are two sides of the same coin. It is not a matter for the courts or the law and order authorities alone. It is necessary to invite public denunciation that confirms appropriate norms. Because of the stigma that attaches to conviction and punishment, the criminal law is believed to have a deterrent effect. However, this is not adequate to prevent either child abuse or violence against children. In this context, the old adage, 'Prevention is nine-tenths of the cure' comes to mind. This book tries to highlight all the probable kinds of violence that could be inflicted on a child, identification of the the potential victims as well as the potential culprits and the various factors that could lead to violence against children. It also traces the sources from where such violence could emanate and the preventive steps that could be taken. The chapters incude Child Abuse Defined; Female Perversion and Children; New Generation of Drug-Exposed Young Children: Maternal Violence Against Children; Killing of Children; and The Female Carer as Pervert. General readers, sociologists, child counsellors, teachers, and educationists and researchers in child development and child welfare will be able to add valuable insights to their own perceptions of the subject. It will help them guide their professional activity and also enhance their career skills. ..more

That children are the citizens of tomorrow is not a debatable point. They have, therefore, a right to be educated, kept healthy, given care and affection and also justice and equality. Then only can they grow up into useful citizens of society. Unfortunately, in most countries all over the world, there is a sad lacking of awareness of children’s rights and, even sadder, a complete absence (with some rare exceptions) of ensuring that the child is given his lawful rights. An attempt has been made in this book to highlight what are the rights of the child, how he or she is deprived of them, and what exploitation takes place when children neither know their rights or can garner support to ensure that their rights are maintained. Areas that are of vital concern to the child, for example, education, health, social status and justice have been dealt with at length to enable the reader to be acquainted fully with the subject. Thus, this book is useful for sociologists, educationists, teachers, researchers, child specialists and all those entrusted with the care and upbringing of children, including parents. They can benefit largely in not only understanding all about children’s rights but also ensure its implementation by the concerned authorities and themselves. ..more

Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities

Social discrimination and social deprivation result fromthe stratification and ranking within a society of its various groups. However, these groups may be defined and integrated. Such discrimination may take place in different spheres-social, cultural,linguistic, legal, economic or even political. Itmay bemulti-dimensional and a group may experience general and brutal discrimination in one sphere and fairly superficial,almost token, discrimination in another. Discrimination exists in nearly every country of the world. Japan, the U.S.A., Europe and the backward countries of Asia and Africa are facingthis phenomenon.Everywhere, there are the elite and the masses, black and white, religious minorities, racial minorities, cultural minorities, linguistic minorities, national and ethnic minorities, dominant and recessive groups-the list is endless.

Child Development and Welfare Services
Sakshi Puri
Child welfare agencies in this country are suffering from over two decades of neglect and under-funding, which has eroded major sections of our country’s social services infrastructure. At the same time, there is a growing realisation that “business as usual” in many areas of child welfare is not adequate for strengthening families and protecting children. Yet, it is ironic that at a time when both public and private agencies are being swamped with referrals, cost-effective treatment strategies are being developed. It is a national disgrace that many child welfare staff members lack either the time or training to implement these service innovations. Within this context, this book examines major policy, practice and research issues as they jointly shape current child welfare practice and possible future directions. In addition to describing the major problems in the field of child welfare, the book highlights some of the service innovations that have been developed, which could be used to help address some of these challenges. The contents include Child Development: Orientation and Scope; Perspectives on Child Development Services; Child Welfare Services; Theory and Practice; Understanding the Policy Context for Child Welfare; Intake, Investigation and Risk Assessment in Child Welfare and Sociology of the Child Welfare Worker. There is also a Bibliography and Index. This book will be useful for students, teachers and researchers in Social Welfare, Sociology and Child Studies. ..more

Women, Conflict-Resolution and Culture :Gandhian Perspective
Naresh Dadhich
BRANDED as the 'Second-Sex' since time immemorial, women have always been degraded to a secondary role in society. However, with the spread of education and awareness, conflicts came into being, often leading to mass public agitations and displays of anger and wrath. Some of them related to female emancipation, franchise rights, equality and equal opportunities to work and livelihood. This book has been planned against this background, endeavouring to explain the rise of women's conflicts and attempts to resolve them in terms of contemporary social and political theory. Such an attempt has been long overdue as the complexities of the culture and society of modern times has led to more tensions between the sexes than a sense of stability. Mahatma Gandhi had realised the importance of women power and their role in shaping the path of history and progress. He spared no effort to drive home the fact that women were equal in all respects to men and could shoulder responsibilities with equal skill and capability. The contributors to this volume have dealt at length with various aspects of Gandhian thought in this respect, especially his concern for women, conflict resolution and culture and have approached the subject with academic enthusiasm. There is no doubt that this book will be useful for students, researchers and teachers of Political Science, History, Philosophy, Sociology,Gandhian Thought and Peace and Women's Studies. ..more

Status of Indian Women
Sushil Kumar Goel
Access to education is not only a basic human right; it is a key to social progress. An all-round development of women has become an important subject of study in the present time. Woman is the pivot of a family, around which revolve the entire activities of men and children. She is responsible for a family’s health, happiness and prosperity. Women, who are home makers, bring a new being into the world. If she is happy & well adjusted, and competent to make strategic life choices, the whole world is a beautiful place to live in. Empowerment, organization and mobilization of women have emerged as pre-requisites for elevating the status of women in society. Empowerment of women encompasses many other aspects in addition to their economic self-sufficiency. It entails education, inculcating self-confidence and ability to take decisions about their own lives. The book on “Status of Indian Women” contains 16 chapters relating to various conceptual and qualitative issues such as women’s development and education, women, health, meal planning, bride burning, eve-teasing, violence, issues and concerns for women with disabilities, stress of working women, qualities and skills of women leadership etc. This book is very informative, intellectually stimulating and interesting. This book will be a valuable addition in any library for B.Ed./M.Ed./Diploma in Special Education/M.A. Psychology/M.A. Education/MSW/M.Sc.

Empowerment of Indian Women
Sushil Kumar Goel
At present the great task before us is the task of nation building. This task cannot be achieved unless the women of our society share the work in an effective manner. The essential and indispensable contribution of the womenfolk can be expected only when they received qualitative education, employment & training and they got enriched, enlightened and empowered. Thus, education is essential to empower the women. The ultimate solution to wipe out the crimes against women is to empower them through education. Women empowerment aims at eliminating discrimination and challenging gender inequality. A high standard of learning and culture was reached by Indian women during the Vedic age. The idea of Indian civilization continued to flourish as India transcended its journey from Ancient to Medieval to Modern times. The book on “Empowerment of Indian Women” contains 9 chapters relating to various conceptual and qualitative issues on women’s studies. This book is very informative, intellectually stimulating and interesting. The need for such a comprehensive document was always felt in our country but was never fulfilled. With this book, the author has fulfilled this long-felt need by bringing out different aspects and dimensions of women’s studies, particularly in the Indian context. Hopefully, this document will serve as an essential text-cum- reference tool not only for professionals working in the field of education but to the policy planners and administrators as well. It will also be a useful document for the parents, community members and the lay persons. This book will be a valuable addition in any library for B.Ed./M.Ed./Diploma in Special Education/M.A. Psychology/M.A. Education/MSW/ M.Sc.

Eco-Cultural Tribal Development
Meenakshi Soubhri
The tribal population is an integrated part of the biodiversity of the forest since ages. A large number of ethnic aboriginal tribes are there who live in and around forests in India. The tribes of India inhabitat different types of ecological setting and have adapted to these natural environments totally and completely. A culture - based development strategy for tribal enables new knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be most effectively and efficiently introduced within the frame-work of existing cultural patterns, institutions, values and human resources. Culture is a living entity, and to survive, it must not only functionally adapt for changing conditions but can indeed be at the vanguard of such change. A bridge is needed between development agents and tribal people to facilitate the transfer of information, skills and attitude-sets relevant to tribal development. Most of the rehabilitation schemes for the tribes have failed to yield desired results because of the cultural factors - some apparent, other subtle, but all critical to the absorption of the development programmes. The understanding of the culture phenomena and their integration for tribal development programme is indispensable. The tribal culture should be-viewed as a foundation rather than as a barrier to change. The relationship between culture and development goes very smoothly for the progress of tribes. Thus, taking into cultural dimension of tribal development not only means adding a spiritual dimension but also to include a dual reflection on both the logic of development and cultural progress of tribes.  ..more

Demographic Transition in India
Seema Sharma
Demography is the scientific study of population. Demographers seek to know the level and trends of population size and its components. They search for explanations of demographic changes and their implications for societies. The Indian demographic scene was undergoing a significant change. Although the country still continued to be in the explosive second stage of the demographic transition, yet the trends in fertility and mortality for the country as a whole, as also for its large parts, indicated a perceptible change. The faster decline in the fertility rate in comparison to the decline in mortality rate of the country was a significant development in this regard since the mortality rate in the country had already declined significantly. The introduction chapter of the book includes effects of population growth on economic development, socio-economic background of India and study area, it includes methodology and data base, objectives and chapter plan also. Chapter two Demographic Transition Theory includes theories those launched by various classical economists and demographers. On the other hand this chapter also includes some measures of main components of demographic transition. Chapter 3 gives overwiew of literature whereas chapter 4 discusses demographic parameters over the years, the parameters are Fertility and Mortality, Urbanization, Literacy and Sex Ratio etc. Demographic profile of the region is studied in chapter 5 wheres chapter 6 deals with fertility and mortality model and empirical results. In this chapter district-wise analysis has been done. Population policy (1999) of the state, needs of population policy and various aspects has been dealt in chapter 7 whereas Demographic Dividends and its Implication are discussed in the last chapter, where we can see the dividends in India.The demographic dividend is not an involuntary marvel, but it requires an integrated and cohesive policy framework in health, education and in labour sectors to reap this dividend and capitalize the window of opportunity increase which is stressing our resources and hampering economic growth. In the last overall summary & final cunclusion of the book is given.  ..more

Awareness of Human Rights in Adolescents
Nivedita Paul
The objective of the book is to bring forth the awareness of human rights amongst the adolescents who are the future citizens of the Indian society. It is indeed the adolescents who will create and decide what is the actual value of these rights. With the awareness of their fundamental and human rights are the adolescents aware of their duties, too? This book is on to find out whether adolescents are really aware of their human rights and if they are aware how much they are adjusted in the society with regard to their culture and socio-economic status. It was accepted worldwide that promotion of human rights is the only way to world peace. So almost all countries framed laws to ensure and protect human rights of their citizens. Though next world war did not occur yet the target of peace could not be achieved within the territories of various countries. Worldwise terrorism has added fuel to this fire-destructive situation. This has proved that law or constitution alone can not protect the human rights of citizens. Now educationists have given a solution to this problem. They have suggested that human rights education might protect human rights of citizens all over the world. But this target can be achieved when human rights education becomes a compulsory part and parcel of B.Ed./M.Ed. and school curriculum. This book will be of special interest to non-governmental organisations, bureaucrats, sociologists and educationists, human rights activists and those general readers who wish to understand and be aware of wide ranging implications of Human Rights.  ..more

Rethinking Gender Equality
Anil Kumar Singh Jha
Indian women are born into a socio-cultural fabric steeped in inequality and discrimination. Women are forced to accept their suppression of freedom and lowering of human dignity as a fait accompli. Bridging the gap between an ideology of equality and a reality in which women are discriminated is the need of hour. Rethinking Gender Equality provides a critical analysis of existing gender inequality in Indian society. The book is a humble endeavour to decipher the specific challenges encountered by women in modern Indian society and how do they negotiate traditional norms as they seek to redefine their self-identity and well-being in modern era. The cornerstone of writing this book is to help readers develop their critical thinking about the pertinent issue which affects everyone’s life. This book is divided into six chapters i.e. Unwanted Daughters; Plight of Female Literacy, Reproductive Health; Child Sexual Abuse; Domestic Violence and Human Rights of Women which are based on the latest reliable data to show the ground reality. Rethinking Gender Equality is a veritable treasure trove of data on critical issues related to women. The book is strongly recommended for the students and research scholars of Gender Studies, Sociology, Social Work, Law and other related fields, media personnel, women’s rights activists and policy makers. ..more

Dictionary of Research Methods
Janak Singh MeenaSubhash Meena
Effective research methods are the tools by which information is gathered. Without the appropriate design and use of research methods, we are unlikely to gather quality information and as such create a shaky foundation to any review, evaluation or future strategy. For researchers, the group of research methods contained within this handbook are the research terms, and like any methods need to be used in the right way–for the right research. Research methods, if understood and used appropriately can make your research a lot easier. This book, therefore attempts on the one hand to explain and demystify the world of research methods, whilst on the other it seeks to provide a strarting point for their use. In this, we are not suggesting that using research methods is easy, but merely that it can be appreciated and undertaken by practitioners and non-research experts. This book, reflects our wider aim to develop and improve the performance of the researchers in their research works. In this, we hope this handbook goes some way in helping to address some of the persistent issues faced by researchers and contributes to ensuring positive changes in research field. ..more

Gender Identity and Roles in India : Issues and Challenges
Swati ChakrabortyRushiraj Balkrishna Upadhyay
From primitive times to the contemporary era, we can see that the status and role of women are changing periodically. In that context, there are lots of variations we can find in the gender identity and the human rights awareness. As a matter of fact, masculine power is consider superior in most societies and in that sense women are marginalized in various sector. Women become victims of discrimination from the family to the work place. Here articles and papers from different parts of India describes various views on different themes relating to gender in development. Gender in Development is of utmost importance today in the fields of research and academics. When we converse about Gender we focus on women and their overall development. Women are an important part of the functioning of any society. From family to group, group to region and region to country, women, like men, play important roles in various activities. Even so, women are found to be socio-economically discriminated everywhere. In that context, for the comprehensive development of women, it is a pre requisite to analyse the status and role of them through various aspects such as Education, Health, Politics, etc. Since social science is concerned with facts, it needs to reveal the facts behind the extent of gender development (past and present) in Indian society. The editors have also included human right concepts in the context of gender and development. The book will be of interest to academics, research scholars feminists, social researchers policy-makers and non-governmental organizations alike. ..more

Dr. Jagdeep SinghDr. Anju Beniwal
The 2011 Census estimates that 69 percent of the country’s total population inhabits in villages. Despite implementing a number of programmes for creating gainful employment opportunities and to improve the quality of lives of rural masses, rural development continues to be a key policy challenge.

Rural development implies both the economic betterment of people as well as greater social transformation. In order to provide the rural people with better prospects for economic development, increased participation of people in the rural development programmes, decentralization of planning, better enforcement of land reforms and greater access to credit are needed. This book mainly focuses on the following contemporary issues related to the panchayati raj and rural development —Panchayati raj —Khap Panchayat —Modernization —Empowerment —Decentralization —Role of NGO’s —Digital Literacy —Health Habits and Food Behaviour —Water Deficit etc. ..more

Tribes and Tribal Discourse : Issues and Challenges
Kartick Das
India has a unique place in the tribal community of the world. In our country the tribal population, which is numerically considerable, is concentrated in various tribal belts as well as in non-tribal belts. There are about 700 tribal communities in India. According to the 2011 Census, there are 24,94,54,252 households, of which 2,14,67,179 households belong to ST population. Total population in the country is 1,21,05,69,573, out of these 10,42,81,034 are classified as ST with 5,24,09,823 males and 5,18,71,211 females.

Gifted Children : Identification and Development
M. G. Pillai
Many children are gifted. They possess faculties and abilities much beyond the average for their age-group. Some of them may even be geniuses with exceptional talent. But in most cases, the special talents go unrecognised in the early stages by parents and teachers and the child is left to fend for himself on two fronts. On the one hand, he finds himself an outcaste among his peers for his so-called ‘ superiority’ and on the other he fails to receive the encouragement and extra stimulus he or she needs for the proper development and canalisation of the inherent special talent and skill. This book studies the characteristics that most gifted children exhibit and how to identify and pinpoint them. It enables parents and teachers of such children to put in the extra and correct effort that, administered at the right time, will enable the child to develop his ‘specialness’ along the right lines and ultimately grow into a useful and important member of society. Educators and parents will surely find this book useful. It will prevent them from neglecting a gifted child and, vice versa, stop them from piling on pressure to produce results on children who just do not have the aptitude or talent to be exceptional, and are just average. Most important, a study of this book will prevent useful talent and skills in children from languishing or developing into frustration because of lack of identification and consequent neglect. ..more

Problems of Nutrition and Child Care
Vijay Kumari Kaushik
The history of child care is a history of changing fashions, based on widely varying ideas about the nature of children, the goals of child rearing and the most effective methods of reaching those goals. Even that sentence makes an assumption that children should be reared, rather than just cared for. The book is about caring for children and in maintaining and promoting their health by proper nutritious diet. It has been established that right type of nutrition helps in the proper physical and mental development. Undernourished children develop many mental deficiencies and their proper development is blocked. In countries like India, a vast majority of children are undernourished, which affects their physical and mental development. This book tries to highlight, the problems of nutrition in a simple and lucid way and emphasises the value of recognition by teachers and social reformers of the importance of nutrition and child care. ..more

Tribal Girls : Aspiration, Achievement and Frustration
Damina Choudhary
Indian society at large is hierarchical, stratified and deficient in vertical mobility. As such, several schemes of tribal development are not making the desired headway despite the clamour by educational planners and politicians. After Independence, several government and non- government agencies have come forward to shoulder this responsibility with adequate budgetary provisions but yet the graph of education, especially among tribal girls, fails to show a significant rise. The problem needs a fresh look and the present book is a welcome step in this direction. It makes a comparative study of tribal and non-tribal girls reading in the same school, their performance and their aspirations on standardised tests. The author has successfully laid bare the threads of pressure that play a significant role in fanning the aspirations of girl students and has unravelled the various layers of frustration when they find that their aspirations are out of their normal reach. This cycle of aspirations and frustration is perceptible in both sections of girls though it is mild among tribal girls. The book is, no doubt, a comparative study of the aspiration and frustration among tribal and non-tribal girls and the findings will be useful and beneficial in planning educational programmes. Educationists, psychologists, policy planners, teachers, NGOs and all those having an interest in tribal affairs and development will surely find it helpful and gain a rare insight into the mental make up of tribal girl students and their non tribal counterparts. ..more

Handbook of Sociology
Leena Parmar
A society, and consequently, a nation, cannot be strong and self-reliant unless it continuously studies itself, identifies its weaknesses, traces its roots, and tries to weed out any detrimental factors that may be creeping into it, obviously. History has many instances of great civilisations crumbling into the sands of oblivion because their societies could not overcome the termites of decadence that ate through the social fabric. Once society falls, a nation falls and once a nation falls, civilisations disappear. This book is a straight and simple attempt to delve into society; the society as it exists today. Social evils and social ills have not only to be contained, they have to be wiped out. But to do that, one must “know”. This is just one small effort at attaining that “know”, or wisdom, in more appropriate parlance. The coverage includes diverse aspects of society like the formation of social groups, how culture influences them, the role of a unified family, the stratification of the community and also how social control and education raises the level of a community or society. ..more

Women and Problems of Gender Discrimination
H. C. UpretiNandini Upreti
This book attempts to highlight the struggle of Indian women. Many of them face unequal relationships throughout their life, from family to polity, still the level of consciousness about these disparities varies according to their socio-economic background. Educated urban employed women are found to be more conscious about socio-economic inequalities. They have been the major beneficiaries of the development process. While illiterate poor rural women and slum dwellers have their own struggle against socio-economic deprivations, it seems that women from sub-urban groups have by and large been marginalised by the development process. After independence, successive governments have passed social legislation to control social evils, yet social customs and behaviour responsible for these evils have not changed significantly. Social legislation equipped the government to fight against females infanticide, child marriage, dowry harassment and widow burning; but they too have failed to change prevalent customs, superstitions and social taboos, and these practices by and large remain and integral part of Indian social behaviour. Along with social legislation, an well-organised mass movement is also required to change the Indian mindset. Universal suffrage and political participation have so far played a limited role in improving the socio – economic status of marginalised women. This volume will motivate students and researchers to make serious efforts to understand issues and problems being confronted by women at different levels of Indian society. ..more

Womens Status and Social Change
Shakuntala Devi
A Frenchman once wrote that the best way to judge the position of a nation was to find out the status of its women. In recent years, women in India have broken free of the traditional image that kept them rooted in the past and joined hands with modernity if different walks of life. Today, they have made good politically and in other departments of national life and human activity. Our Statute Books contain many a legislation that has rid them of several legal shackles and thus helped to raise their status. They have been given the chance to develop according to their own ability and genius and many of them have taken advantage of the new opportunities and thus demonstrated afresh their inner worth. This book shows and analyses the social changes that have come about consequent to the new role of women and how they have conquered (if that is the word) it. It will be a source of enlightenment to those who wish to discover the new mindset that our women have acquired to keep pace with the social challenges that arose during the latter half of the twentieth century and how they are preparing to face the twenty-first. ..more

Child Labour in India
R. P. Yadav
Children are the important assets of the society. Every child has the right to enjoy his childhood. They have the right to education, play, recreation and development of their personality. But it is ‘harsh reality’ of the global society that out of 153 crore children, about 25 crore are ‘Child Labour’. They are working in hazardous, most worst forms and other works. Virtually it is a matter of gross violation of ‘Child Rights’. The concentration of child labourers in India is highest in the world. This harsh reality of the society is fostered by many socio-economic and cultural factors. In India, state intervention to eliminate child labour have been basically of two types—the ‘legislative interventions’ and the ‘welfare interventions’. More than 4000 ‘Special Schools’ are active in 100 child labour endemic districts spread over 13 states of India. Such schools are educating and rehabilitating more than 2 lakhs child labourers. The present book is a honest effort in this regard just to present a ‘comprehensive picture’ about the complex and gigantic problem of child labour in India. The book is a collection of 19 academic and research papers contributed by many scholars from different universities of India. The papers are grouped into following four sub parts. Part I Child Labour : General Issues Part II Child Labour : Causes, Conditions and Forms Part III Child Labour : Regional Studies Part IV Child Labour : Combating Child Labour This book will be useful for students, academicians, researchers, NGOs, trade unions and governmental agencies. ..more

Violence Against Women
M. Chatterjee

Women’s Empowerment in India
S. NayakJ. Nair
This book traces the evolution of Indian women through the mists of history to the present efforts to empower them and give them their rightful place in society. Attempts in this direction have not been dramatic or aggressive but rather after the old Indian fashion of combining chance with continuity. It was Gandhiji who brought a dramatic chance among our women, when at his bidding they came out in large numbers from the shelter of their homes to take their part in the struggle for India's freedom. Once the old shackles were removed, it was no longer possible to replace them in the same way. Attempts were no doubt made to go back, but they were bound to fail. This book brings much information, which will enlighten the reader's mind and give him and idea of what our women have done and are doing. ..more

Issues in Feminism
Leela Desai
Till about the middle of the seventeenth century, it was the universal assumption that women belonged to the home as wives and mothers. Their entire life was devoted to the home and they remained within its confines. They had no rights over property; no control over inheritance, no control over custody, and no right to bring a civil suit. They did not even have the right to vote. However, with the advent of the Industrial Revolution, and other historical circumstances, the isolation of women in the domestic sphere began to erode. The rights that they had been deprived of became central issues in the nineteenth century women’s rights movement. This book not only delineates those rights but also discusses those issues that became part and parcel of vigorous debates in modern feminist theory. Each issue has been articulated, explained, discussed in detail and then put in the right perspective of the modern woman who stands shoulder to shoulder with her male counterpart and equal in all respects. The chapters say it all. They include Feminism and Marxism; Liberal Feminism; Cultural Feminism; Feminism and Romanticism; Pornography, Sex Discrimination and Women; Feminism and Freudianism; and Feminism and Postmodernism. The in-depth evaluation of each issue and the detail with which logical conclusions have been drawn add a new dimension to the entire concept of feminism. General readers and teachers, students and researchers in Women’s Studies and Sociology will find this book of great help. They will not only be able to get a better and deeper insight into the various issues that confronted, and still confront in some measure, the status of women in various parts of the world, but will also be able to enlarge their own viewpoints on the subject. ..more

Feminism and Its Strategies
Leela Desai
THE feminism that we know today has its roots in Western society. Gaining a foothold after the First World War, it dveloped momentum during the days of the Great Depression and progressed still further after the Second World War. The women's liberation movement took shape in the United States of America and every shade of feminist activity was reflected in it. The concept is still prevalent strongly in the U.S.A. and Britain. This book analyses the various aspects of feminism, and its relation with politics, capitalism,Marxism, etc. Chapter I provides a Marxist Feminist Analysis, Chapter II discusses issues like Femininity, Masculinity and Sexual Practice, while Chapter III probes the ideology of Feminismand the Culture of Gender in various societies. Chapter IV takes up the issue of Gender and Class in the Educational System and Chapter V relates Marxism with Gender and the Division of Labour. Chapter VI discusses Women's Oppression and the Family while Chapter VII, the last, discusses Capitalism and Women's Liberation. These chapters, thus, provide a deep analysis of the issues involved in feminismand feminist movements. This book will surely prove useful to sociologists, students of feminist sociology and those interested in learning more about the development of feminism and its role in the march of civilisation and society. ..more
