About this item

A four-volume series, The Parsis of India is the first comprehensive analysis of the Parsi community and its demographic decline with a pan-India focus. It brings together scholarly articles and empirical work from multiple locations using the mixed method research approach and addresses key concerns impacting the demography of this ethno-religious minority. Extensive in scope and investigative in analysis, this is the only major socio-psycho-anthropological work in over a decade on the dwindling Parsi community.

The series will be useful for academicians, researchers and policy-makers interested in the Parsi community in particular, and in minority communities in general. It will also serve as a handy reference for the community and its leadership.  

Vol 1: The Indian Parsis: Themes Old and New edited by Shalini Bharat and Armaity S. Desai

The first volume in the series, Volume 1 covers a wide range of historical and contemporary concerns of the Parsi community. The chapters cover the history and demography, issues of poverty and charity in the community and methodological concerns in researching minority communities.

This volume integrates the findings that emerge in the other three volumes in the series covering themes on family, youth and the elderly, and contextualises the key demographic concerns of the community with suggestions for forward action. 

Vol 2: Contemporary Parsis: Marriage, Family and Community by Shalini Bharat

Volume 2 explores the socio-cultural dimensions of the Parsi demographic decline from the community’s perspective. It presents insights into how the Parsis perceive and understand its demographic challenges and opportunities for survival. This volume will be of interest to students and academicians in the fields of Sociology, Psychology, Family Studies, Human Development, Minority Studie
