Dear Members of the Indology List,
I have recently completed a book on Castes in India. The book
addresses question like:
- How did the Caste system originate in ancient India?
- Why do casteist practices like those of untouchability (in rural
areas) and endogamy continue to exist though Caste as a system of
occupational heredity and a matrix of production and exchange
relationships which needed such practices has itself disappeared?
I have put up a web edition of my book on Caste System in India. This
is a sociological and historical study of the subject.
You can access the site at:
I look forward to receiving feedback from Sociologists and Indologists.
