About the Book :

Since the demographic studies have very rarely considered religion and caste as major social stratification variables, this book on Religion, Social change and Fertility Behaviour based on a study carried out in the Travancore region of Kerala is a fascinating and excellent piece of contribution in the field of demography. It attempts for the first time to explain the differential influences of many demographic, developmental and cultural variables that influence social change among different religious groups and also ultimately fertility behaviour. It is an innovative, theoretical cum-empirical study valuable for promoting socio demographic change in many developing regions of the world. The book should prove invaluable for students of Social Sciences, Population and Health Sciences as a reference as well as a text book for research and teaching.
