      Indian Society has been analysed with different perspectives such as
      religio-philosophical, historico-political, Marxian and so on. On the one
      hand, these perspectives have greatly strengthened theoretical foundations
      of analysis and on the other hand, the creative thinkers have presented new
      approaches to understanding utilitarianism, income-egalitarianism, welfare-
      egalitarianism, libertarianism, etc. The unorthodox way of looking at the
      problems in our society by Indian philosophers and radical writers, as
      different from western scholars, has shed a new light on the current
      concerns. Today, Indian society is no longer perceived as a traditional
      society. Rather, it is now viewed as a modern society. But changes brought
      about by various planned measures also have negative consequences. This
      requires evaluation of social issues both in the existing and emerging
      societies. Rich in empirical data and theoretical analyses, the present
      work is an endeavour to understand the dynamics of various aspects of
      Indian society.

      1. Historical Moorings of the Indian Society
      2. Social Stratification
      3. Scheduled Castes, Untouchability and Backward Classes
      4. Family, Marriage and Kinship
      5. Economic System
      6. Political System
      7. Educational System
      8. Religion
      9. Tribal Society
      10. Rural Social System
      11. Urban Social Organisation
      12. Population Dynamics
      13. Corruption
      14. Black Money
      15. Smuggling
      16. Social Change and Modernisation


      Ram Ahuja retired as Professor of Sociology from the University of
      Rajasthan, in 1988 after rendering his services for more than three
      decades. He was awarded a gold medal by Calcutta University in 1999.
