A Look Inside
Main Description
In India, the village - as an idea, as an organizing principle, and as the basis of life - has remained sturdy in the popular conception. The study of villages is important, as they have an inherent capacity to bring out the 'pluriverse' in societies, against the universal principles that have come to dominate the social sciences, especially where the rural is concerned. In this book, research papers are thematically arranged into five sections, examining the role of India's villages in: development administration, political events, constitutional amendments, empowerment of marginalized groups, and socio-psychological probings. The book promises to be of immense value for social scientists, regional planners, policy makers, and administrators.
