The Sociology of the Professions is an emerging sub-field of Sociology. It is gradually gaining ground in India which is evident from the empirical studies conducted by Indian social scientists. The present book, Readings in the Sociology of the Professions is a testimony to this growing interest. Contributions from eminent social scientists have been included in this book. One finds a comprehensive discussion on concepts and attributes of professions and the various approaches followed in the study of the professions. Papers on field investigations are also included in the book. This is one book which includes at one place, studies of different professions such as teaching, medical, legal, social work and others mostly written in Indian context. This would facilitate the students, researchers, and teachers. The book would also be of interest to the general readers interested in understanding the normative and actual realities of the significant functionaries of the society.
