Written by more than two dozen leading social scientists and presented at the conference to commemorate the birth centenary of the legendary professor V. K. R. V. Rao, this compilation of papers examines the contemporary context of social science research in India. While it discusses the Indian experience, this volume’s findings are relevant wherever social science research takes place, especially in Second and Third World countries. Economists, policymakers, and academics will benefit from this book.

Review:

"This book is a timely diagnosis of the problems of SSR institutions and India can, at its own peril, delay a response because creating a rich social science knowledge resource is required to ensure that the transformation underway is fair, inclusive and sustainable. Prof. V.K.R.V. Rao imagined that the SSR institutions he set up, and the social science policy he argued for, would perform this function. This book reminds us of this aspiration and gives us a way to the future."  —Prof. Peter Ronald de Souza, director, Indian Institute of Advanced Studies, Shimla



"For a complex and fast changing society our understanding of societal issues and forces impinging on them is rather inadequate. In this book some of the best known social scientists have dwelled into the reasons for this inadequacy, probed into the environment and institutional factors which are inhibiting quality research in social sciences and, suggested the directions in which we have to move. This publication is all the more welcome as it is a part of the birth century celebration of Dr. V. K. R. V., one of the insightful social thinker, effective policy maker, and a great institution builder."  —V. S. Vyas, professor emeritus, Institute of Development Studies, Jaipur



"The volume contains papers written by some of the leading social scientists in India and is likely to be of interest to all who want to enrich their knowledge of the institutional aspects of social science research in India."  —Prof. Amiya Kumar Bagchi, director, Institute of Development Studies, Kolkata



"Of all the publications in the V.K.R.V. Rao centenary, this is, in a sense, the most valuable, because it captures his ideas, institution building, and period. . . . Definitely a collector's book."  —Prof. Yoginder K. Alagh, chairman, Institute of Rural Management, Anand
