"Indian Village is widely considered a "classic." Since its publication, over six decades ago, the book has received immense acclaim, attaining extraordinary success, especially as the first book on a single village in post-Second World War South Asia. Indeed, the work represents a key statement of the wider shift from tribe to village in Indian anthropology, part of the movement away from studies of "isolated" groups toward writings on contemporary communities in the sociology of the subcontinent. Written in an accessible, intimate manner Indian Village needs to be understood today as a flagship endeavor of the social sciences in a young, independent India '" a study that continues to be generously cited, including as a model monograph, in the disciplines at large."--Provided by publisher
