Basic Concepts

By H.K. Rawat

The discipline of sociology is fast developing in India but there is not a single introductory book in English barring a few written by foreign authors, which do not serve much the Indian students. This book has been designed to cater to this need of textbook for introductory sociology courses. It maintains the comprehensive coverage, readable style, liveliness and numerous other features to make it popular among the student community, particularly those approaching sociology for the first time. It is therefore both student-friendly and jargon-free, to ensure that readers are able to get the most out of the text. Each chapter opens with a list of the central issues discussed therein. Besides, key terms and conclusions drawn are highlighted. Suitable examples, figures and illustrations reinforce the text. It is hoped that this book will serve as a base text for sociology teachers and students alike, as well as for all those preparing for various competitive and civil services entrance examinations.
