About the Book :

This volume tries to present the diverse concerns of psychology in the context of disciplinary and societal changes taking place in the contemporary period. Working on the premise that academic disciplines grow within the socio-cultural matrix, it maps the evolving landscape of psychology not only by examining the questions of science, culture, social policy but also by reflecting on the contributions of psychology towards a better understanding of some of the important issues facing the country like poverty, deprivation, quality of life, environment, family, values and prejudice. The book will be of interest not only to the students, researchers and professionals in the fields of psychology, education, sociology and human development but for the general readers interested in appreciating psychological perspectives on various social issues.
