Between Ethnography and Fiction: Verrier Elwin and the Tribal Question in India

T.B. Subba (Editor) Sujit Som (Editor)
Synopsis Between Ethnography and Fiction brings together essays by sixteen scholars of various disciplines to re-examine the work of Verrier Elwin in the fields of tribal literature, tribe and non-tribe relationship, tribal development policies, missionaries and conversion, myths and legends, art and craft, etc. Elwin is undoubtedly one of the most controversial as well as influential anthropologies of the twentieth century. The essays included here are therefore both appreciative and critical.
