Studies in Indian Sociology

Studies in Indian Sociology

First Edition
Seven Volume Set
Edited by:

Series Editor: Jacob John Kattakayam

December 2011 | 2 120 pages | SAGE India
Studies in Indian Sociology, is an invaluable collection of scholarly works. The seven volumes in this series bring together the perspectives and research of some of the best-known academics and practitioners from the discipline of Sociology.

The first six volumes in the series are a collection of theme-based articles that have been published in the ISS’s biannual journal Sociological Bulletin. The seventh volume, Indian Sociology over the Years, is a collection of select ISS presidential addresses, edited by Jacob John Kattakayam.

The fact that some of the articles that will appear in this series are several decades old and hence have fallen out of our immediate reach increases their value immeasurably. The publication of this series is also an attempt to commemorate the contributions and contributors of ISS to both the discipline of Sociology and society.

Volume 1: Indian Sociology: Issues And Challenges
Editor: L Thara Bhai
Volume 2: Changing Caste: Ideology, Identity and Mobility
Editor: Surinder S Jodhka
Volume 3: Agrarian Change and Mobilisation
Editor: B B Mohanty
Volume 4: On The Margins: Tribes, Castes, and Other Social Categories
Editor: Abhijit Dasgupta
Volume 5: Themes in Sociology of Education

Volume 6: Sociology of Social Movement
