About the Book
The SCs in Jammu and Kashmir State too face more or less the same situation. While majority of members of this community still live in below-poverty-line status and rank experienced least benefits in the processes of change and development. Moreover, the attainment of modern education by SC children has not necessarily led to their overall mobility. This is the situation which prevails at present among the SCs living in Jammu region of the State.
However, there seems a qualitative difference in the treatment of SCs at the hands of the Muslim majority community in the State. In fact, this situation represents a particular case in which the SCs are not under full political, social, cultural and economic control of the upper caste Hindus. It is this perspective with which we have carried out this sociological study among the SCs in the Jammu region of the State.
The book has five chapters. The first chapter deals with introduction of the topic. The second chapter explains the methodology adopted during the entire course of this empirical study. The presentation of sociological profile of SC communities in J&K is the topic of third chapter. The fourth chapter is composed of all findings of this study and their explanation. Finally, the fifth chapter sums up conclusions and suggestions of this study.
