India’s path of development is passing through a rapid social upheaval. The first three decades after independence were pursuing the policy of infrastructure building. The State was the biggest partner in the process of social transformation till the eighties. The era of globalization experienced fast economic reforms where State started shirking its role of development and left the job in the hands of private partners. NGOs too started dominating the processes of development. This volume addresses some very important questions: In which direction Indian society is transforming? What is the role of State in bringing about social transformation? Which are the dominant forces that set direction for social transformation? Who are the gainers and losers of development in the era of globalization? What stresses and strains the process has created in Indian society? This volume provides an understanding of the above raised issues and offers grassroot level information through empirical investigations of social transformation across various regions of India. Scholars from diverse disciplines have contributed their research, studies, perceptions and ideas on the central theme of emerging crises in the wake of globalization since 1991 in India.
