In 2012, I published a book – Social Work and Social Welfare, Historical Cultural Perspective, Niruta Publications, Bangalore. It included selected, revised and updated parts of my earlier two books: Social Welfare: An Evolutionary and Developmental Perspective, Macmillan – India, 1981 and Social Welfare, Health and Family Planning in India. Marwah Publications,1979. I had also added four chapters especially written for that book.
National Book Trust of India, N.Delhi considered this book for a re-publication under its subsidy scheme and decided to sanction the subsidy amount with suggestions for abridgement and reorganization of content of some chapters. Accordingly some changes have been made in the original 2012 edition of the book. They are: deletion of the chapter on Bhakti (chapter No.20), merging the content of three chapters (No 14,15 and 16) into one chapter – Indian Perspective of Social Work and merging the content of chapter 18 – Sarvodaya Methods of Social Work and B.N. Ganguli’s views on Gandhian Social Work (Appendix I). Chapter No.15 is an entirely new chapter incorporating the contents of chapter No.17 and Appendix I. I think these changes have improved the quality of the original edition of the book and I thank the anonymous referee of the National Book Trust for his helpful suggestions.
Once again I thank Ramesha M.H. and his team, Niruta Publications for publishing this new abridged and revised edition of my book. I hope the book will reach a wider audience including students and teachers of social work in view of its subsidized, affordable price.
