Description

The issues tackled in this book will be useful not just for academicians interested in these issues but also for planners and social workers who are interested in action and social change.

This book focuses on the socio-economic transformation among the weaker sections in society and examines how their socio-economic conditions have changed over time, with due attention to the structural transformation in Gujarat. The contributors to this volume, N R Sheth, Ghanshyam Shah, Sujata Patel, Junko Kiso, Takashi Shinoda, Mario Rutten, Anil Gumber, to name a few, are all scholars of international repute and they have done detailed class / caste / gender analyses to put certain deep-rooted practices and issues in perspective.

The affluence of society is reflected in the position of weaker section. In this respect this book provides fresh analytical framework and knowledge on weaker sections and will interest readers keen on understanding the real affluence of society vis-à-vis common features like marginalization, segregation, discrimination, neglect and invisibility.

The three sections in this book deal with different issues that directly affect the underprivileged. Part I consists of articles analyzing the status of the backward classes; Part II includes papers dealing with the process of polarization and its effect on the weaker section in urban and rural Gujarat and part three deals with the position of women.
