Description: Analyzing a crucial case to convey a new theory is an honored tradition in social analysis. Marx analyzed England to explain the dynamics of capitalism, and Durkheim studied Australian aborigines to develop a theory of religion.In Status and Sacredness, Milner analyzes the Indian caste system and Hinduism to develop a general theory of status relationships. Moreover, he argues that sacredness and legitimacy are special forms of status and, hence, his theory also organizes much of what we know about political legitimation and religion -- as well as throwing new light on these subjects.

The analysis is built upon in a new theoretical framework, "resource structuralism", that clarifies the nature of power, the types of elites and nonelites, the significance of symbolic capital, and more generally the nature of social resources.

This book will be essential reading for those interested in South Asian studies, social stratification, religion, and general social theory.
