The selected articles discuss the growth of the sociology discipline over the past 75 years so that one can get a cross-section of the thinking of sociologists towards the growth, issues and challenges faced from time to time.(http://www.sagepub.in/books/Book243233?siteId=sage-india&prodTypes=any&q=Studies+in+Indian+sociology+-+7+Vol.&fs=1) Vol. 2 - This volume has a range of select articles on different dimensions of the caste system in India. These articles have been divided into three parts. The first part deals broadly with conceptual and theoretical issues. The second part has empirical accounts of different dimensions of caste and the related daily experiences of the changes and continuities, with most of the articles looking at the patterns of social mobility among individual communities and sections of population. The third part focuses on different dimensions of the political sociology of caste and identity politics.(http://www.sagepub.in/books/Book243234?siteId=sage-india&prodTypes=any&q=Studies+in+Indian+sociology+-+7+Vol.&fs=1) Vol. 3 - The articles in this volume compose a panoramic view of the kinds of changes that have been taking place in agrarian structures and their underlying effects on the other aspects of rural life. They discuss the themes of changes, continuities and challenges in the theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches in critical agrarian change.(http://www.sagepub.in/books/Book243235?siteId=sage-india&prodTypes=any&q=Studies+in+Indian+sociology+-+7+Vol.&fs=1) Vol. 4 - The 11 essays in this volume explore different aspects of marginalisation among the scheduled castes, the scheduled tribes, the backward classes, women, workers, refugees, minorities, physically challenged persons, and so on. They show how from the margins of Indian society they mobilised themselves to take an active part in social protests and raised a voice against discrimination in different spheres of social life.(http://www.sagepub.in/books/Book243236?siteId=sage-india&prodTypes=any&q=Studies+in+Indian+sociology+-+7+Vol.&fs=1) Vol. 5 - This volume contains 12 articles that present a mix of both theoretical perspectives and empirical studies in the area of sociology of education. This volume is divided into four sections: section one deals with education as a social system; section two focuses on issues and concerns of the education of minorities and women; section three focuses on the key issues that need to be addressed in formation and implementation of educational policies; and the last section examines certain key issues related to the adoption of vernacular language as medium of instruction and the critical insights into the role of intellectuals. The essence of this volume is that education is basically a social institution that must be responsive to social change.(http://www.sagepub.in/books/Book243237?siteId=sage-india&prodTypes=any&q=Studies+in+Indian+sociology+-+7+Vol.&fs=1) Vol. 6 - The volume is a collection of articles on both conventional and new social movements of India and the subcontinent published in the Sociological Bulletin from the 1970s to the present. The essays have been divided into four sections. The first section deals with the conceptual and theoretical issues of social movements. The second section articulates the issues of agrarian unrest, mobilisation and movements in India. The third section focuses on movements of dalits, adivasis and minorities of India and the subcontinent. The fourth section relates to empirical accounts of contemporary environmental movements in India.(http://www.sagepub.in/books/Book243238?siteId=sage-india&prodTypes=any&q=Studies+in+Indian+sociology+-+7+Vol.&fs=1) Vol. 7 - This volume is included as a part of the Studies in Indian Sociology series, yet it stands apart from the other volumes in terms of its approach and import. A committee constituted as part of the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations recommended that a volume comprising of presidential addresses delivered at the All India Sociological Conferences held till date be brought out.The committee recommended that the criteria for the presidential addresses selected should also consider their relevance in the contemporary social scenario. In response to that the Indian Sociological Society (ISS) has come out with this academically fruitful endeavour—a separate volume on selected presidential addresses from 1967 to 2010—to celebrate the successful completion of 60 years as a professional body. It is the sole comprehensive reader on the changing themes in Indian Sociology.(http://www.sagepub.in/books/Book243239?siteId=sage-india&prodTypes=any&q=Studies+in+Indian+sociology+-+7+Vol.&fs=1)
