About this Item: Sarup, New Delhi, 2006. Hardbound. Condition: As New. New. Contents Preface. Abbreviations. 1. Introduction. 2. Crime and Criminal Tribes Acts. 3. Socioeconomic profile of Siddhapuram and Stuartpuram settlements. 4. Reformation and rehabilitation. 5. Conclusions. Appendices. Glossary. Bibliography. Index. The present study on Siddhapuram and Stuartpuram settlements of ex criminal tribes is welcome addition to the existing literature on Denotified tribes of Andhra Pradesh. Quite a few works have been published on Indian tribes in general and DNTs of Andhra Pradesh in particular. However the work on the so called ex criminal tribes is rather scarce. In all there are five settlements for these DNTs. Of these two settlements have been placed under the care of the Salvation Army. Stuartpuram is one of the two. Being located in the present Guntur District of Andhra Pradesh the settlement is named after the then acting secretary to the government of Madras Mr. Stuart. Known for its notoriety of crime with leading dacoits hailing from this settlement it has attracted the attention of several social activists like Lavanam Hemlatha Lavanam of the Atheist Centre Vijayawada who ungrudgingly devoted their time and energies in bringing about a change in the culture of crime set of the settlers. After a prolonged and sustained record of service and devotion by these agencies and also the government there is visible change today among the inmates here. The author of the present work has been able to procure rare records and documents from the national Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh archives. He also made an elaborate survey of secondary sources relating to the present work. What makes the book unique is the extensive oral testimony that the author has laboured hard to collect and on its basis the whole work is reconstructed. 284 pp. Seller Inventory # 62939

About this Item: Sarup, 2011. Contents Preface 1 Introduction to rural sociology 2 Rural social institutions 3 The rural Jajmani system 4 Rural co operative societies 5 Agricultural marketing 6 Panchayati Raj 7 Community development 8 NGOs and rural development 9 Poverty alleviation programmes 10 Land reform 11 The green revolution 12 Agricultural labour References The identification of rural sociology with rural society has also raised questions about its relevance in the western context where no rural areas were left anymore and almost the entire population had become urbanized In response to these critiques of rural sociology a new sub discipline of sociology emerged that operated largely within the functionalist paradigm and was preoccupied with the study of the community life or rural people This sub discipline known as sociology of agriculture focused its attention on understanding and analyzing the social framework of agricultural production and the structures of relations centered on land It raised questions about how and on what terms the agrarian sector was being integrated into the system of commodity production and about the unequal distribution of agricultural incomes and food among the different social categories of peopleThe sociology of agriculture also distinguished itself from peasant studies on the grounds that its focus was on capitalist farming where the production was primarily for the market not on peasants producing for their own consumption by using family labour Thus it claimed more kinship with the tradition of the political economy of agriculture or agrarian studies At the methodological level historical inquiries became as relevant as ethnographic empirical studies This conceptual shift during the early 1970s also helped in bringing sociologists working on agrarian issues in the western countries closer to those concerned with agrarian trans formations in the third world jacket 328 pp. Seller Inventory # 99459
