This fully revised, updated and expanded fourth edition distinguishes itself from the previous ones as the data on all the social problems have been updated, and new arguments/ comments, reflecting new developments, have been provided. This new edition maintains all the distinctive emphasis which gave the earlier three editions nation-wide popularity. This wonderful, easy to understand, textbook will not only continue to be of prime importance to students preparing for the competitive examinations but also for administrators, policy makers, planners and a much wider audience.
