Description

In this book, the author attempts to identify the organizing principles of Hindu Society, the factors which have ensured its continuity over the centuries, and the forces responsible for its subsequent weakening.

Beteille's Introduction which analyses the qualities of Bose's mind and work especially as illustrated in this book, and his preface to this revised edition enrich this valuable study.
