First published as 'Caste and Race in India' in 1932, this is the third edition of Ghurye's revised work 'Caste and Class in India', in which he explores the origins, features and history of the Caste system; the relationship between Caste, British rule and nationalism; class and its role in the Caste system; and elements of Caste outside India.
