Synopsis

The book tries to portray sericulture, as a crop enterprise, and which is emerged as one of the foremost view in the theoretical and methodological understanding in the disciplines of Sociology and Social Anthropology in India. Thus, anthropological analysis of sericulture and its emergence in the development literature gives us an idea of the activity leads to further theoretical and critical studies. Anthropological understanding of the sericulture and its development, thus, is explained thoroughly as studied by the scholars of the different disciplines in across the states of India. Sericulture is best suited to a country like India where manpower and land resources are in surplus. It generates direct and indirect employment in various ways. More and more farmers in India have taken up sericulture activity and which was once confined to only five States, has spread to almost all the States of India. Sericulture also creates gainful employment to women and aged people at homes with minimum risk. Thus, the analysis clearly establishes the importance of sericulture over other crops in the generation of fresh employment opportunities in rural areas.

Further, as a predominant sector of rural development, stability is the vital need of sericulture enterprise. In the book, an attempt is made to understand the anthropological/sociological view of development. The book is interdisciplinary in nature and will be useful to scholars and students of Anthropology, Sociology, Economics, Social Work, Rural Development, Gender Studies and Development Studies.
