This is a detailed study of ethnicity. The volume analyses the origins of the concept, explores its relation to identity formation and social discourse on it through the exhaustive study of an Indian city. The book attempts to develop a general theory of ethnicity in urban India for Indian sociology. The main contention of the study is to suggest departure from the definition of ethnic group as caste or religion based and to widen the discussion to the actual constituents of an ethnic group both in a rural and urban setting. The work explores the existing literature on ethnicity and revisits the utility of this enterprise through a demonstration of the multiple character of ethnic groups, providing detailed data and its implication for urban India s social problems. Printed Pages: 304.
