Dalits in India : search for a common destiny by Sukhadeo Thorat( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dalits in India: Search for a Common Destiny explores the status of Dalits in the country by presenting all-India and state-level analysis of various human development and related social and economic indicators. It provides a comprehensive understanding of the processes and dynamics that exclude them from mainstream development and are causative of their relative peripheral position." "The first of its-kind study examines dimensions such as demography, gender, levels and patterns of urbanisation, occupational patterns, ownership of income earning assets like agricultural land and business, situation of rural labour, employment and unemployment, employment under reservations in the public sector, incidence of poverty, literacy and education levels, health status and access to healthcare facilities, access to civil amenities like housing and the status of civil rights, with a particular emphasis on the practice of untouchability, social discrimination and atrocities."--Jacket
Bridging the social gap : perspectives on Dalit empowerment by Sukhadeo Thorat( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bridging the Social Gap: Perspectives on Dalit Empowerment addresses four interrelated issues. It conceptualises exclusion-linked deprivation of excluded and indigenous groups in Indian society and elaborates the concept and meaning of social exclusion in general, and of caste-, untouchability- and ethnicity-based exclusion in particular. It then presents the status of disadvantaged groups of Dalit and Adivasi and captures inter-social group inequalities in the attainment of human development. It then goes on to analyse factors associated with high deprivation of these disadvantaged groups in terms of low access to resources, employment, education and social needs. Finally, it highlights the role of caste discrimination in economic, civil and political spheres in the persistence of group inequalities. All these issues have been explained using simple language; relevant and recent data; case studies; news highlights related to civil, social, economic and political rights violation for easy and better understanding of readers. -- Provided by publisher
Blocked by caste : economic discrimination in modern India( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume argues that the Indian society is characterized by multiple forms of discrimination and exclusion that create profound barriers to upward mobility and freedom from structures of deprivation. The essays study widespread patterns of discrimination and underlying attitudinal orientations that contribute to inequality in various aspects of life. Based on archival research, field surveys, and interviews, the contributors explore practical aspects of economic discrimination and social exclusion in India. They also discuss some of the theoretical issues related to social exclusion in general and economic discrimination in particular, to provide conceptual backdrop and to place the empirical studies in necessary theoretical perspective. The book investigates historic patterns of discrimination with factors like reservation in private sector, globalization, caste and employment, ownership of private enterprises, labour market, poverty, health care, education, food security, and creation of Dalit identities as well as the consequences of discrimination and possible remedies. -- Publisher description

India--the untouchables : the small secret of India( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today it is illegal in India to discriminate against Dalits, which literally means "the oppressed," the term now commonly used to refer to India's former untouchables. Despite the legal abolition of untouchability a half-century ago, they continue to be the target of systematic discrimination and comprise a highly disproportionate percentage of India's illiterate, landless and jobless population. Dalits number 260 million Hindus, making caste discrimination one of the world's biggest human rights issues. The film describes several examples of caste discrimination and also discusses the landlord-sponsored militia, Ranbir Sena's Army, which is attacking agricultural laborers and their families, all of them Dalits. The Ranbir Sena says the Dalits will be targets unless they cease their agitation for better pay and land and repudiate the Naxhalites. These are Maoist armed-activists who have gained a following in parts of Bihar by assisting agricultural workers in organizing and defending themselves from landlord violence
