This book , the fifth volume in the series of Indian Social problems, is important as it touches on all aspects of social reconstruction in India.

In this volume Prof. Madan advocates that to have social reconstruction in a democratic society two things are essential: (1) High moral character of the elite based on simplicity in living, and (2) Helping attitude towards the poor. As a practical measure People in India should follow Mahatma Gandhi. He discusses in detail the Gandhian concept of social reconstruction and the role of political parties in it.

One deals with Prof. Myrdal's views on Indian society as reflected in his book Asian Drama, second reviews the development in the country from 1975 to 1984, and third, reviews the progress made in the country during last fifty years since independence and the task ahead for the next few years.
