Urbanization in India
Sociological Contributions



October 2003 | 256 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
This book is an edited collection of 13 papers covering various sociological aspects of urbanization. It is thematically organized into four sections; section one gives an overview of varying perspectives on urbanization; section two explores continuity and change in traditional caste and class structures as they evolve in urban contexts; section three studies neighbourhood relationships; and section four deals with slum dwellers and migrants, demonstrating the applicability to India of concepts established by studies of rural-urban migrations in Africa.
