About the Book :

Jharkhand and Odisha forests harbour the majority of tribal communities. Jharkhand, itself means “the land of forests” and its land area is about 49,821 square miles, and much of it is covered in trees! So is the case of Odisha. Land rights, displacement, right of forest produce collection, exploitation and identity crisis have been the main problems tribal people are encountering with.
Based on the findings of empirical research study by the author, this book mainly discusses the following issues: Identity and Ethnicity in Jharkhand and Odisha; Development induced Displacement in Odisha and Jharkhand; Implementation of Forest Right Act, 2006 in Jharkhand and Odisha; Study on Land Rights in Odisha and Jharkhand; Significance of Non-Timber Forest Produce in the Livelihood of Adivasis in Jharkhand and Odisha; Labour Migration from Odisha and Jharkhand etc.
Definitely, this will delight and enlighten researchers, administrators, policy-planners and all those concerned with tribal and forest issues—social and human rights activists.

About Author :

K. Gopal Iyer hailed from Tamil Nadu. But his interest in popular movements took him to Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Haryana, Punjab and other parts of the country. A gold medallist from Patna University, he retired from Department of Sociology, Panjab University, Chandigarh in 2002, where he had been teaching since 1978. He was not just an academic as he has been relating himself with people's movements all over the country. His contribution to the understanding of land reforms in India after five decades of the land reforms law in various states in India is the first of its kind and has vividly described the fallacy in the conceptualisation of land reform legislations and inactive implementation of the laws across the country. He took interest in understanding the problems of rural poor and his published studies are on the bonded labour system, human rights violation of migrant workers, peasant movements, farmer's movements, and land reforms and so on. A prolific writer he has authored a number of outstanding books, research papers, project report etc.

He passed away at the age of 75 in Chandigarh on 19th October 2017.
