The present three-volume publication focuses on the structure and systems in place for administration of all social welfare programme in India. It provides a comprehensive overview of the entire range of social welfare schemes, institutions, modalities, policies, parameters and machinery involved in the activities, from the earliest times to the present day. In carefully structured information, it covers theory and concept, and practice for the beneficiaries. While the volumes together will undoubtedly prove to be valuable basic material for all research scholars, sociologists, social workers and policy-makers, the individual volumes will be of particular interest in view of the specific subjects they cover of special interest in the volume on underprivileged and marginal communities, including tribes, minorities, child labour and sex workers. The categorization and measures for the welfare of youth, children, elderly, handicapped, ex-servicemen and ex-prisoners will be much use to concerned groups. The role of voluntary organisations and an international perspective are also valuable features.
