UPSC Civil Services Mains 2017 Sociology Paper and Essential Sociology

Hi friends,

We thank you so much for the tremendous response for the book. And a testimony for it is that the book has ran out of stock within a few months of its release. However, the book is undergoing reprint and shall be available soon.

Another matter of pride for us is that, almost all the questions of Sociology Mains 2017 Paper were from this book and apparently the book passed its first test of UPSC after its publication.

For example, questions like ― Yogendra Singh's idea of Modernization of Tradition, idea of Gandhi and Ambedkar on caste, various theories of social change, cultural and structural views of caste and change in caste, New Social Movements, development related imbalances (development and dependency), causes of low sex ratio in developed states, Islam in India, distinction between family and household, distinction in kinship and family in North and South India, dominant caste, tribes and religion (or tribes and caste and changes in tribal identity), Marxian Historical Materialism as a critique of Hegelian Idealism and so on ― are explained very clearly in the book. These are some of the questions which have to be often researched from multiple sources or are very difficult to be found in standard text books for a satisfactory grasp on them. Apart from them, all the conventional questions that were asked in 2017 Mains Exam are there in the book.

We are extremely happy that the book must have proved very handy to all of you in the exam and we also hope that it will continue to prove useful in future also.

Thanks
Seema and Nitin

My Upcoming Book on Sociology Optional

Dear friends,

When I started my preparation for Sociology, the biggest hurdle that I faced was that - there was no single source for the subject and I had to run from pillar to post to gather the material. Topics were scattered in tens of the books and still I was not able to cover the complete syllabus. To overcome that limitation, I tried to compile the syllabus from numerous books and other academic sources and finally it took shape of a veritable book. Post selection in the UPSC Civil Services Exam, I pondered over if these notes of mine could be put to some other better use and the idea of writing a book came into my mind. After working upon it for almost nine months, the idea finally took material shape and now it gives me immense pleasure to announce that the cover of my book "ESSENTIAL SOCIOLOGY" was recently released by LexisNexis. The book will be available from 30 June 2017 on Amazon and LexisNexis.

Some of the salient features of the book are:

  1. It covers the complete syllabus of both the papers of the Sociology optional.
  2. It has been written in a very concise and easy to understand manner.
  3. Analytical understanding of the topics of Paper 1 and 2 of Sociology for Civil Services Main Exam with updated information till March 2017.
  4. Equipped with around 200 illustrations, diagrams, tables, information boxes, it supplements the text for better and deeper understanding.
  5. Chapter-wise specially designed question bank for self-assessment and for fulfilling present and future needs of the optional exam.
  6. Use of cartoons at the start of each chapter (drawn by author himself) to provide clarity and stimulate thought at the very beginning of each chapter.
  7. Lots of additional information over and above the prescribed syllabus keeping in mind the contemporary trends, dynamic nature of this exam and to make the aspirants capable of answering even the un-anticipated questions.
I hope you will love the book and it shall address all your needs regarding Sociology optional and will ultimately help in scoring good marks in the Civil Services Exam. 

It gives me extreme pleasure that the book is finally out and is now available at -
