Mobile and Marginalized Peoples: Perspectives from the Past

Shereen F. Ratnagar (Editor) Rudolf C. Heredia (Editor)
Synopsis The specific themes covered in this volume are modernization and the victimization of the disadvantaged; nomadic pastoralism and tribal organization as separate from the state; the rise of chiefships or states in regions where it was pastoralism rather than agriculture that produced wealth, artisanal mobility and the kinds of crafts of agrarian settled regions in the past; the forms of incorporation of tribal society into feudal states; shifting cultivation and its relationships with peasantry and local markets; and the gradual changes effected in pastoral society in early Tamilakam. This volume is based on a symposium sponsored by the social Science Centre, which is engaged in action-oriented participatory research on issues of current concern. Its publications include Tribal Education for Community Development (1989); and Tribal Identity and Minority Status: The Katkari Nomads in Transition (1994).
