Buddhist Sociology attempts to build a system of sociology from early Buddhist thought. For this purpose, the author utilises the original Pali sources, while making use of the available Buddhist tradition as well.
The author adopts a sociological cum anthropological approach, enriching it by experiences derived from Buddhist thought itself. He then goes on to deal with topics such as family, socialization, social institutions, social structure, political and economic theories, women in Buddhist society, social problems, education, health and crime and punishment.
