About This Book

The book deals with different aspects of the histories of adivasi communities – from Rajasthan in the west to Bengal and Orissa in the east.
Some of the issues addressed in the volume are the genesis and development of ‘tribal’ studies in India during the colonial period; the peasantization of adivasi groups and their assimilation within the Hindu caste fold as reflected in Tulsidas’ Ramcharitmanas; the work of the Protestant missions among the Santhals of Chotanagpur; the social and ritual relations between the Bhils and the Rajput ruling dynasties of Dungarpur in southern Rajasthan; the aspect of agrarian change among the Hos of Singhbhum. Also discussed are the factors behind the migration from Chotanagpur, its nature and organization and its impact upon the adivasi village community; the question of women’s agency in colonial Chotanagpur; and an exploration of land rights, witchcraft, employment patterns and how women challenged patriarchy in their everyday lives; and the impact of globalization and liberalization upon adivasis in contemporary India.
