Collected essays, written over two decades, which focus on the relationship between various forms of inequality and distinction (race, caste, tribe, ethnicity and gender), on concepts of the person, on the relationship between the values of equality and individualism, and on the role of the Indian State as the guarantor of these values. The author's other titles include "Caste, Class and Power" (1969), "Castes, Old and New" (1969) and "Studies in Agrarian Social Structure" (1974).
