    schema:description ""Filling this gap, this book, which is the first of its kind on legal ethnography for Indian tribes, studies the relationship between tribes and the state with reference to the Indian legal system. It focuses on three tribes of India - the Bhils in Maharashtra, and the Santals and Pahadiyas in Jharkhand, which was earlier a part of Bihar. The author traces the historical roots of their dispossession in the ancient and medieval periods, their engagement with and subjugation by the British, and how their ordeal of disempowerment continues even after independence. Dr. Dhagamwar looks at the historical relationship of these tribes with settled societies and also at some of their internal legal structures. The last part of the book consists of her interventions as a legal activist in the problems faced by these tribes, which culminated in public interest litigation writ petitions in the Supreme Court."@en ;
