The book is an excellent treatise on education as related to both Sociology and Philosophy. There could not be a more fundamental approach to the various problems of education than the one that the learned author, who is a doyen in the field of education, has made in this book.
The book deals with the study of as many as twenty-four most well-known and paramount issues in education that the students and researchers in educational philosophy and educational sociology, often seek and find great difficulty in locating from most of the literature available in the market.
The book would be found highly useful by students of Philosophy and Sociology of education.
