Class Structure in Rural Bengal

Class Structure in Rural Bengal Anjan Ghosh Classes in a Rural Society by Pradip Kumar Bose; Ajanta Publications, New RURAL society in India has been characterised by sharp inequalities. Village studies which constitute the staple of sociological research have highlighted primarily its caste elements. In his study Pradip Bose focuses on the rural class structure to explain the structure of rural society in West Bengal. It is based on a study of four villages in Birbhum and Purulia districts. The book developed from the author's doctoral dissertation, brings together data gathered through extended fieldwork in the villages between October 1974 and January 1976, with an additional month-long return to the Birbhum villages in March 1977 to cover the Lok Sabha elections.
