Foundations of Sociology

Towards a Better Understanding of the Human World

This book argues that the foundations of sociology - key concepts which are necessary to all sociology, from whatever perspective - have become taken-for-granted and require re-assessment. Focusing on society, culture, the individual, and collectivity, the author builds a powerful case for an overhaul of these basic concepts, offering a unified model of the subject matter of sociology as 'the human world' - understood as individual, interactional and institutional orders - which is part of the 'natural world'. Written in a straightforward and accessible style, this is a powerful restatement of the value of sociological sense as a necessary critique of common sense, and its relevance to an audience far beyond academia.

Prisoners of Faith

A View from Within

Most multi-ethnic societies are experiencing a growth in assertions of ethnic identity. This is particularly true of developing societies where this process has spawned a series of tensions and conflicts. Yet, the concept of minority remains little understood. Further, most conceptualizations of what constitutes a minority are created in contemporary societies and do not apply to developing countries. It is this which inspired Srinivasan to focus on the lebenswelt of Muslims and Christians--two of the largest minority communities in India. She argues that the concept of minority should be conceptualized in terms of individual perceptions and awareness. She critically evaluates the Eurocentric model in terms of minority and presents a novel attempt to synthesize phenomenology and Marxism for the study of personal identity as social structure and process. In addition, she advocates that conventional wisdom of social reflection has obviously become inadequate and introduces an alternative approach relevant to contemporary societies. Rich with both empirical evidence and theoretical formulations, this book will appeal to both students and scholars of sociology and anthropology, and to administrators and policy makers.
