Culture and Society, shows us that the questions of the nation state must have precise emblems, or facts, by which it is studied. These motifs may be leisure, propaganda, film,  theatre, cartoons, ideologies of race and caste, as well as the  continuing production of a variety of materials, which inform lay readers as well as trained professionals, how eclectic the subject matter of Sociology is. Well-known sociologists, who will be remembered for their astute sense of the here and now, bring to the volume its intense intellectual space of negotiating the cultural dynamics of India as it unfolds in the last decades of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st century.
