The Political Elite in a Developing Society The Political Elite in a Developing Society
Anup Kumar Dash

Studies in Social Anthropology in India have, by and large, concerned themselves with original traditional groups with identifiable cultural norms in non—urban settings. But with more and more urban development on the one hand and an awareness of the need to understand and improve the status of women on the other, nurses emerge as an important identifiable group in an urban setting. This study investigates the many conflicts that nurses face in their transformation from traditional upbringing to a modern occupation in an urban milieu and, in particular, examines the conflicts that emerge from the low status accorded to their profession.
