About the Book :

There is no dearth of literature on urban youth and the problems that beset them or those they generate. Rural youth, however, have not attracted the attention of sociologists to the same degree. Their socialization and the role they play in rural society have rarely, if ever, been highlighted. Karanth micro-level study concentrates on a Karnataka village. What emerges is a profile of rural youth closer to relity than a national level study can provide. Keeping in mind the size of this country and its diversity, such studies should provide the much-needed basis for more realistic planning and policy-making at the national level. Those interested in rural development would also benefit from a perusal of this volume.
