Product Details: Share this by email:
Both in India and in the rest of world, the relationship between the state and the indigenous people, most of them with distinct ethnic and political identities has not been an easy one. From sheer coercion and condescending attitudes, state power have varied in their approach to the people but the ultimate aim has always been their usurpation with the larger Nations and a subjugation of their resource.
The present book brings together the views and analysis of a large number of distinguished scholars on the subject of Government policies with respect to tribes. These scholars speak as tribals and non-tribals, and as policy makers and critiques of them.
A number of issues of national and international importance and controversy such as the Narmada project, the Bailadila Mines, the successive Five year plans, Nehru's Panchsheel, ethnic problems o the people's republic off China and the erstwhile U.S.S.R.; the American Indians, etc; to name only a few, have been taken up in this volumes.
In its range and scope it will interest all scholars of anthropology, sociology, tribal history and all who are involved with formulation and implementation of development projects, planners, administrators and students.
