This book is a comprehensive study of historical sociology and its development, especially in the Indian context.

T. Colebrooke, Francis Buchanan, William Adam;* engages with the works of sociologists such as M.

N. Srinivas, Ramkrishna Mukherjee, Louis Dumont, Nicholas Dirks, Bernard Cohn, Yogendra Singh, D.

N. Dhanagare, A. M Shah, T. K. Oommen, among others; and* shows how historical perspective has been adopted in understanding aspects of Indian society - villages, castes, traditions, socio-cultural change, education, peasants and their movements, etc. Presenting an alternative idea of social reality, this book will deeply interest students and scholars of sociology, social theory, and social history.
