Social Problems in India has established itself as a leading textbook in the field of sociology. This fully revised, updated and expanded edition distinguishes itself from the previous one as five more chapters on domestic violence, ageing and elder abuse, tribal unrest, globalization and consumerism and agricultural distress and formers’ suicides. have been added; a few more problems, such as honour killings, acid attack and cyber crimes, have been discussed; data on problems discussed earlier, viz., terrorism, alcoholism, communal violence, drug abuse, child abuse, violence against women, youth unrest, black money, population explosion, juvenile delinquency, unemployment, poverty, urbanization and illiteracy have been updated; and new arguments/comments, reflecting new developments, have been provided. This third edition maintains all the distinctive emphases which gave the earlier two editions nation-wide popularity. It offers analysis and critical evaluation with a sociological perspective and also gives theoretical explanations wherever deemed necessary, increasing the academic importance of the book not only for students and those preparing for the competitive examinations but also for administrators, policy makers, planners and a much wider audience.
