Book Reviews




Itsmatter of great pride that JSWERA has been continuously producing high quality research papers as per theInternational standards. We are rightly moving towards advancing the theory, bridging the gap between theory and practice and developing the indigenous knowledge for the social work professionaccording to the predetermined goals.


The present volume comprises of nine well written papers amalgamated with some empirical studies and literature reviews.In the first paper of this volume, Neera Agnimitra discussed the importance of higher education in developing the capacity of disaster managers and citizens to prevent, mitigate, prepare, respond and recover from disasters. Pushpa &Neelam Sukhramani presented a critical commentary on women police as duty bearers in addressing gender based violence.In his paper, Md. Shahid Raza examined the process of capacity building and skill development by studying a comparative sample of women SHG members and non-members.Shivani Chauhan Barooah,in her paper highlighted the efforts of SEWA vis-à-vis the quest for decent work for home-based workers in Ahmedabadwith the help of primary and secondary data.Nadia Aha & Pratibha J. Mishraexplored the vocational skill building opportunities which create employment to the unemployed youth of Bastar region of Chhattisgarh.In their joint paper,D. P. Singh & Ritu emphasized upon replicating the American model in India for crime reduction through sports. In his paper Pradeep P.N. sketched the social entrepreneurial context for social work practice in Kerala with reference to marginalized communities.Sanjay Bhattacharya’s paper reflects upon the fact that without recognising the individual and collective rights and ensuring protection of various cultures, people can never truly enjoy freedom and equality.Supriya Rani & Kislay Kumar Singh attempted to locate the challenges in the practice of non-formal education which leads to the gap between the desired ends and the attained ends of non-formal education. In the book review section,‘Care and Protection of Girl Children in India: Status, Emerging Issues, Challenges and Way Forward’, edited byAtul Pratap Singh & Awadhesh Kumar Singh;Chikitsalaya Mein Samaj Karya’, authored by Pankaj Kumar Singh; and ‘India Since 2002’, authored by Mukul Dube have been reviewed by Nimisha Gupta, Banshi Dhar Pandey and Sudhir Maske respectively.
