Review :

The essays in this volume cover a wide array of perspectives and material from sociological study and statistical analysis to personal memoirs and a poem.... [The Authors] have done a creditable job of balancing diversity and depth, readability and research.

(Contributions to Indian Sociology)

This volume is an illuminating exposition of Indian families in transition through critical literature study from the colonial period to the present. The students of anthropology and sociology will find this book very interesting for understanding Indian family life and culture change through generations.

(South Asian Anthropologist)

The book provides an authentic account of the way the Indian family has evolved from colonial times to the modern period.
