About the Book :

This book makes a comprehensive study of the tribal struggle for freedom, with special reference to Singhbhum. It historicises the role of the Adibasis, particularly the Ho community, in organizing and offering valiant social protest against feudal as well as British imperialism. Giving a geographical and historical account of Singhbhum, it offers a detailed discussion on Kol Rebellion of 1821, the infamous agreement signed on 7 May 1821 between the British and the Hos, and the Second Kol Rebellion as well as its aftermath. The saga of indomitable courage of the subalterns has also been highlighted.

About Author :

Sunil Kumar Sen (1914-84) completed his M.A., B.L. from Patna University. Study and research remained the passion of his life though law was his profession. Love for the soil to which he was born inspired him to undertake the rare task of reconstructing the history of the glorious anti-British struggle of the tribals of Singhbhum about which there was no in-depth study when he started his work. Rare for his time he could guess, largely because of his empirical experience and continued interaction with tribal intelligentsia, that historicising tribe required invocation of oral sources and a critical examination of archival as well as relevant printed materials. The songs he could collect enriched his understanding of the tribal situation and helped him write a narrative that may claim to have enriched the historiography of tribal uprising in Jharkhand and India.
