Dalits in Modern India: Vision and Values

S M Michael (Author)
Synopsis One of the profound changes in contemporary Indian society has been the emergence of a new sense of identity among the Dalits. The Dalit movement not only rejects the very ideas of pollution, impurity and 'untouchability' but in the process is forging a new vision for Indian society which is different from that espoused by the higher castes. This volume explores the social, economic political and cultural content of the Dalit articulation and its relevance for the nation, both today and in the future. This incisive and timely collection studies the aspirations of the marginalised masses for a new humanity based on the principles of equality, social justice and human dignity. It will attract a very wide readership particularly among sociologists, political scientists and social anthropologists as also those dealing with human rights, social movements and the Dalit phenomenon.
