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 (second) edition by having added five more chapters on domestic violence, ageing and elder abuse, tribal unrest, globalization and consumerism, and agricultural distress and farmers' suicides. Other issues are also discussed, such as honor killings, acid attacks, and cyber crimes. Problems discussed in the earlier edition (terrorism, alcoholism, communal violence, drug abuse, child abuse, violence against women, youth unrest, population explosion, juvenile delinquency, unemployment, poverty, urbanization, and illiteracy) have been updated. New arguments/comments that reflect new developments have been provided. The book 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.
