Neo-liberalism through marketization, privatization and globalization was pursued as an ideology by the developed nations during the last three decades or so to control and influence the global economy including that of the developing nations. In our context, globalization as a process to integrate our economy with that of the world got initiated in the early 1990s after the Indian State depleted its resources and mortgaged the reserves at its command. We had no option but to open our economy to the market economic forces. However, in certain quarters, it is argued that globalization as a phenomenon and process, was likely to bring in the social transformation of the Indian society by affecting our social institutional and organizational arrangements while there were others who thought that because of socio-cultural diversities inherent in our social structure, globalization might have limited penetration in our agricultural and bio-massed society. The present book is an outcome of the papers presented and deliberations made in a seminar on 'Socio-Cultural Diversities and Globalization' by eminent scholars drawn in from different disciplines on these two divergent perspectives on globalization.
