From the Back Cover:

A Companion to the Anthropology of India offers a broad overview of the rapidly evolving scholarship on Indian society from the earliest area studies to views of India's globalization in the twenty-first century. Contributions by leading experts present up-to-date, comprehensive coverage of key topics that include developments in population and life expectancy, civil society, social-moral relationships, caste and communalism, youth and consumerism, the new urban middle class, environment and health, tourism, public and religious cultures, politics and law.

The broad variety of topics on Indian society is balanced with the larger global issues -- demographic, economic, social, cultural, political, religious, and others -- that have transformed the country since the end of colonization. Illuminating the continuity and diversity of Indian culture, A Companion to the Anthropology of India offers important insights into the myriad ways social scientists describe and analyze Indian society and its unique brand of modernity.

Isabelle Clark-Decès is Professor of Anthropology and the Director of the Program in South Asian Studies at Princeton University. Her books include The Encounter Never Ends:Return to the Field of Tamil Rituals (2007).
