This volume is included as a part of the Studies in Indian Sociology series, yet it stands apart from the other volumes in terms of its approach and import. A committee constituted as part of the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations recommended that a volume comprising of presidential addresses delivered at the All India Sociological Conferences held till date be brought out. The committee recommended that the criteria for the presidential addresses selected should also consider their relevance in the contemporary social scenario. In response to that the Indian Sociological Society (ISS) has come out with this academically fruitful endeavor--a separate volume on selected presidential addresses from 1967 to 2010--to celebrate the successful completion of 60 years as a professional body. It is the sole comprehensive reader on the changing themes in Indian Sociology.
