About the Book :

The nine chapter monograph delineates micro-empirico inquiry into the democratic socialization of students of school, college and University of Gaya town in the State of Bihar (India). This reveals an unavowed influence of situational factors on psychological predispositions required for democracy. The study centres round pre-adult democratic socialization and, in particular, it relates to democratic attitudes of students. The main theme of inquiry is students' sense of political efficacy, tolerance of minority dissent and support for competitive party system which constitute operationally defined content of democratic orientation in this study. It is useful to the development of a scientific theory of democracy to discover how well Indian democratic system is operative in socializing the new generations in the values and institutions of democracy.
