About the Book :

Indian society is at the crossroad between the dynamism of modernization and stability of tradition. This is best reflected in the changing nature of intergenerational relations (IGR) in Indian families. The changes have attracted widespread attention from policy makers to public intellectuals, with some vociferously opposing the effects of modernity and some supporting the shift as rise of the individual. This book is a psychological mapping of interactions and relationships among different generations in terms of attitudes, beliefs, values, and familial role obligations. The integration of psychological, anthropological, and sociological perspectives enriches the content and provides a holistic view to readers.
