Andaman and Nicobar Tribes Restudied: Encounters and Concerns

R.S. Mann (Author)
Synopsis As a unique indepth, empiricism-based, analytical and scholarly exercise, this book highlights a tribal scenario which hardly finds a parallel anywhere on the globe. Techno-economic primitivism of this highest order, social and physical isolation of an extreme nature, a minimal the world-view, hostile encounters and dwindling population are some of the markers of the aborigines under study. Torn apart under mounting alien threats, the cultural ecology turned to shaky heights. Onslaughts of various forms caused irreparable damage to the Negrito tribes of Andamans. While the Nicobarese escaped, the Shompens of Great Nicobar are in the process of being trapped into difficulty. There is nothing much in the name of scientifically designed strategy. Casual approaches, devoid of seriousness, diluted the gravity of situation adding thereby to the problem-complex. Within the background of a common history of mounting miseries, chiefly inflicted by the aliens, the directionless Andaman tribals assess their future in no other terms but ultimate extinction.
