An internationally acclaimed scholar, T.N. Madan has been contributing to studies in social anthropology and sociology for half a century and more. This collection deals with India’s Religious traditions. It also speaks of the “traditional builders” of Indian sociology, their salient contributions and approaches.
The title of this artfully written book is a subtle play on words: it is about the sociology of traditions and the traditions of sociology. The author is one of India`s premier sociologists, and to read his interpretations is to see a master at work. Sociological Traditions may well become the most influential of T.N. Madan`s many excellent books.
This marvellous book records T.N. Madan`s journey through the sociology of Indian sociology. Over the years, he has redrawn the contemporary landscape of the discipline. It is only appropriate that he now looks back at it with a mix of intimacy and professional detachment. And he does so with unfailing sensitivity to the ways in which cultures of knowledge and individual lifecycles interact.
