Family, Kinship And Marriage In India by Patricia UberoiIndia is the second most populous nation in the world, but the dynamics of daily life are not understood by many in the West. This work examines various aspects of Indian families: how they are organized, how property is distributed in marriage, and the structure and change of the household. It develops each aspect with a discussion of regional differences and classic writings in the field. Clearly written, this work is helpful to all those interested in families, social alliances, and comparative studies.

Family, Kinship and Marriage in India. Patricia Uberoi. Oxford in India Readings in Sociology and Social Anthropology have been carefully planned to suit the needs of the general reader, students, teachers, as well as scholars from other disciplines. Problems have been posed in general theoretical terms, but Indian ethnography has been used as faras possible to illustrate them. Each volume is devoted to a core area in sociology and social anthropology and brings within one cover important writings, some of which are very difficult to find. In this way it serves the useful purpose of short-circuiting the vast body of writing in a discipline,and at the same time presenting the current state of the art in it. Family, Kinship and Marriage in India attempts to capture the great variety of family types and kinship practices that are to be found in the South Asia region, and the several theoretical formulations which posit an underlying unity in this variety.
