This book examines the characteristics of family life of various religious and cultural groups in India and analyses the diversities and complexities of family patterns, practices and ethos that exists in India.
It draws upon a range of inter-disciplinary perspectives to identify the extent to which family values, the nature of family life and family living differ between different religious and cultural groups in India. The book represents one of the few compilations of first-hand comparative research on the Indian family.
The chapters are clearly written, easy to read and are supported by empirical data. All the chapters in this volume, individually and collectively, will facilitate a greater understanding of the diversity of family patterns in India-one of the most relevant topics of inquiry today.
