Anmol Publications, Jan 1, 1993 - Women - 650 pages
Of Late, The Women S Question Has Attracted The Attention Of Social Scientists Who Find Plenty Of Area Still Unexplored For Research. Women And Their Problems Have Acquired Growing Importance In Our Social Milieu. Hence, After Realizing The Significant Role Of Women, It Is Desirable That A Greater Emphasis Should Be Given For Her All Round Development And As Such Imparting Education And Providing Employment To This Vast Segment Of Population Becomes Prime Need Of The Hour. It Has Been Observed That Indian Studies On Women, By And Large, Suffer From A Crucial Lacuna Such As; Lack Of An Integrated Approach, Which Takes Into Consideration Both The Micro And The Macro Level Region. The Present Volume Is An Attempt Towards This Direction.It Identifies A Number Of Major Issues And Combines Empirical Material With Theoretical Insight And Discusses The Actual Position Of Women In Society. The Book Is Divided Into Two Volumes And Five Sections Viz; (I) Status Of Women (Ii) Educational Structure Of Women, (Iii) Occupational Structure Of Women, (Iv) Women In Politics, And (V) Women S Welfare.The Present Book Covers Diverse Aspects Of The Subject And Discusses Complexity Of Problems Faced By Women. This Is Multi-Disciplinary Investigation Into Various Aspects Of The Pressing Socio-Economic And Political Problems Facing Indian Women. The Study Provides An Overall View On Issues And Problems Related To Women Contributed By Distinguished Social Scientists And Presents A Comprehensive View On The Subject. Hence, It Is Hoped That This Book Will Be Of Immense Importance And Interest To Social Scientists, Policy Makers, Administrators And Scholars Who Are In Search For A New Paradigm Of Women And Development. The Book May, Perhaps, Be Best Described As Multi-Dimensional But The Editor Goes Beyond That Takes Into Account The Various Educational, Economic, Political And Social Factors Which Have Changed The World Of Work In India Since Independence.
