Social Movements and the Paradigm of Functional Analysis-With Reference to the Non-Brahman Movement in Maharashtra

Adopting a largely deductive approach, the author, in the first part of this paper, examines the analytical status of the concept of a social movement and outlines some of the characteristics of the processual pattern we identify as a social movement. The second part of the paper seeks to gain an insight into the dynamics of the relationships of social movements to the social systems in which they arise, using the structural functional mode of enquiry and with substantive references to the non-brahman movement in Maharashtra.
