It is through the contributions of the pioneering scholars that not only a particular discipline derives its name but also the foundations on which a particular discipline is built and grows. G.S. Ghurye (1893–1983), Radhakamal Mukerjee (1889–1968), D.P. Mukerji (1894–1961) and M.N. Srinivas (1916–1999) are known as the pioneers of sociology in India. It is mainly on them and on their contributions that the contemporary sociologists in India have extensively published in the issues of the Sociological Bulletin. Volume 10, Pioneers of Sociology in India, contains a selection of papers that have been published since 1977on these founding fathers of Sociology in India.
