This book, in continuation of the tradition of action anthropology, is a
contribution in the discipline of anthropology. It specifically portrays the
experiences of an administrator, as an action anthropologist who spent
considerable time with the tribes and other vulnerable groups in India. This is
also particularly important in the post-globalised India where attention of the
government as well as academia on tribes and tribal societies has increased
significantly.
The title 'Persistence and Change' is an anthropological understanding and it
provides an ethnographic account of a tribal society in West Bengal in particular
and tribal societies at large in India. The thrust of the book is to describe tribal
lives and livelihoods empirically. It also tries to capture the snapshot
experiences of the tribal communities. The book critically analyses the various
development initiatives of the government in order to address the problems and
needs of the tribal communities of India, in general, and West Bengal, in
particular.
The book may explicitly be useful to policy-makers, public functionaries,
academicians, social scientists, scholars and students of anthropology,
sociology, and development studies.
