About the Book :
Tribal people in India represent a significant degree of social, cultural and ethnic diversity. Tribal situations in the country pose peculiar problems of development, not encountered in the other domains. The variegated peculiarities can broadly be summed up as ecological, demographic, socio-cultural, biological and exploitative. Tribal development in Indian context indicates serious challenges to the administrators, policy-makers, and development as well as welfare specialists.
The central purpose of this book is to re-establish the relevance of anthropological domains of tribal development, policies and welfare measures in Indian context. The book also throws light on important biological and socio-cultural issues of tribal development and social change in India. It is hoped that the book will be useful in understanding the multiple dynamics of tribal development from different empirical evidences in India to the students, scholars and policy-makers.
