Tribal Communities and Social Change

Description
In almost all developing and developed societies, tribals are viewed as the ‘other’—an anachronism or an object of curiosity. Initially marginalized by the creation of the boundaries of the nation-state, these indigenous peoples were further hedged in by colonialism and, then, by the indifferent or patronizing modern state. This volume brings together significant contributions by distinguished Indian and foreign scholars on the sociology of tribes, particularly those of India as also of Africa and Canada. It focuses on the social history of a cross-section of tribes in these three societies.

This book is one of the Indian Sociological Society: Golden Jubilee Volumes.
