Fertility Behaviour: Population and Society in a Rajasthan Village
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 019568706X / 9780195687064; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This study explores the highly sensitive demographical problem of fertility behaviour through intensive fieldwork method of social anthropology. It presents a holistic perspective on fertility behaviour through a study of a village in Rajasthan. The second edition discusses the methodological and theoretical issues relevant in fertility studies and further enriches our understanding of the meaning and relational contexts of reproductive actors. The author has successfully combined the disciplines of demography and social anthropology. In addition to applying the method of participant observation, she has used village census, retrospective fertility histories of women, genealogies, and case studies of men and women to interpret fertility trends. According to her, objective conditions of life which include changes in the larger social order are linked in an important way to the subjective orientations of a people. This in turn influences norms regarding fertility behaviour. The importance of intensive studies of small communities, which are able to identify specific problems, are therefore self-evident. The work also looks at the 'fertility career' of a couple in relation to the different stages of development of the household. 019452

Understanding Indian Society brings together a collection of writings by eminent scholars across disciplines that capture the dynamic character of Indian society.

Taken together, the collection demonstrates the analytical richness of current scholarship and gives fresh insights into the society of India. Commemorating Professor A. M. Shah's work in the contemporary context, the contributors highlight the major role he played in the growth of sociology as a discipline. The book will be of interest to specialists in gender studies, sociology of family and religon, medical socillogy and development studies.
