Bhartatil Samaj - Paperback , MarathiThis comprehensive analysis of Indian society brings together the results of modern social research to trace the patterns that underline social relations throughout India. Society in India views social relations in the county as systems and subsystems and shows that contrary to belief this is not static or stagnant, but has been continually adapting to changing circumstances mainly on the basis of certain deep- rooted psychological and social themes.
This edition combines two volumes. Volume One: Continuity and Change deal with the concepts of social system and caste order and then defines the major components of Indian society. The constituent chapters note the cultural effects of kinship networks and the psychological effects of the tensions inherent in family relations. Volume Two: Change and Continuity deals with social change and its major types, recurrent and systematic. It examines and summarizes the discussion of psychological forces and social processes in our society and appraises the trends of modern social change.
