Abstract

Despite the existence of a large body of literature on intergenerational social mobility within Indian society, UnEven Odds by sociologist Divya Vaid offers a unique contribution to the field. It is the first comprehensive study of the whole country that theoretically questions and quantitatively tests the links between class of origin and destination, as well as caste and gender identities, and rural-urban locations. UnEven Odds is not only remarkable because it is the first book to really analyze class mobility in India, it is also a model of thorough quantitative analysis. It definitely opens the way for further quantitative research in social stratification as indicated in the book’s conclusion. It offers an important theoretical conceptualization of social class and achieves an ambitious empirical analysis of social mobility in India.
