Author: Maya Unnithan-Kumar

Summary:
Most studies of the so called tribal communities in India stress their social, economic, and political differences from communities that are organised on the basis of caste. It was this apparent contrast between tribal and the caste lifestyle and, moreover, the paucity of material on tribal groups, that motivated the author to undertake this study of a poor "tribal" community, the Girasia, in northwestern India.
