S. Chand's Social Sciences For Class - VIII by J. C. Aggarwal, N K Chowdhry
Book Summary:

The present book is the third in the series of text books on Social Sciences for the Middle sections. The contents are based on the latest syllabus prescribed by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT). The book has been organized in four Units. These are ‘Our Pasts – III, Resources and Development, Social and Political Development–III and Disaster Management. The total thrust of the syllabus is on enabling the students to grow up as reasonably well informed, responsible and mutually appreciative citizens. The future citizens would be able to contribute significantly to economic growth and social integration only if they are proud of their ancestry and tolerant of diversity.

They have to be aware of the problems that follow economic growth and the need for development that is sustainable and inclusive. Disaster Management is introduced in this book to aware the students about National Hazards and Protection against the disasters. Every possible effort has been made to keep the narration simple and easy to understand. Where necessary, the new words introduced in the Chapters have been explained in the beginning. Explanatory tables, maps and pictures have been inserted at appropriate places within the text to make the matter easy to remember. The review Exercises at the end of every Chapter are based on a variety of formats. There are very few long answer type questions.
