About the Book :

The present volume provides a sequential nexus of Tradition, Modernization and Globalization right from the early stages up to present time. The continuum of tradition and modernity is delineated clearly in different papers in the wake of modern scientific inventions and technological innovations. Some of the very brilliant analyses of the features of tradition, modernization and globalization done by the sociologists of international repute and specialized scholars of social sciences have made this book a unique specimen that provides a critical and crosscultural analysis of tradition, modernization and global developments with concrete instances in different domains of societies.
The book is divided in two major parts. Part one deals with the historical perspective of tradition and modernization and part two focuses on the emerging features of tradition, modernization and globalization and their impacts on different components of economy, polity and social structure in the developed societies of Europe and USA as well as developing societies of Asia, Africa and Latin America. This book may be an academic stimulant to administrators, planners and policymakers of governments and scholars of higher studies as well as scientists and technologists interested in the fields of modernization and overall global development.
The present volume is the outcome of a joint academic endeavour with Prof. S.K. Srivastava, who left for heavenly abode on 12 May 2012 in the mid journey of the publication.
