    Description

    Social Problems In India discusses the various social issues that affect the country, along with their causes.

    Summary Of The Book

    Every society has its own problems. Problems arise due to many reasons. They are symptoms indicative of underlying causes that need to be focused on and resolved, in order to make the problems go away.

    Social Problems In India thoroughly discusses the various problems in the Indian society, along with the causes. The book covers the issues in 17 chapters, providing focused coverage of each particular issue in separate chapters.

    The first chapter discusses concepts and approaches in social problems. From the second chapter onwards, the author focuses on particular issues like Poverty, Population Explosion, Unemployment, Communal Violence, Violence Against Women, Child Abuse and Child Labour, and Urbanization. Social Problems In India also covers Crime and Criminals, Caste System, Youth Unrest, Juvenile Delinquency, Drug Abuse, Alcoholism, Black Money, and Terrorism. Each issue and related problems are discussed in detail, the causes and effects thoroughly analyzed.
    The author discusses the problem, the underlying reasons, the scope of each issue and the possible ways to counter it. He believes that a fresh approach is needed for the current times. This edition of Social Problems In India has been revised to include more material on topics like terrorism, crime against women, child abuse and communal violence. It also contains new sections on AIDS, Corruption and Bonded Labour.

    Providing critical analysis of problems with a sociological perspective, and theoretical explanations for academic study, this book is useful not just for students, but also for planners and policy makers.

    NOT UPDATED AFTER 1997. DO NOT BUY

    Its a 2013 reprint not revised. The latest coverage is up to 1997. although it deals with a wide range of aspects very well demarcated, there is no use since it misses the contemporary issues and almost every part of those discussed desperately need to be updated. nothing more than the index part is probably useful for a potential reader. waiting for an updated and revised edition.

    Purely info-oriented

    i bought this book by seeing its index which is quite impressive but the way each topic is covered is very mechanical and highly difficult to read. just Information overload. no analytical discourse.
