Encyclopaedia of Indian Tribals (In 2 Volumes)

Shiv Kumar Tiwari (Author)
Synopsis The present work “Encyclopaedia of Indian Tribals” introduces more than two hundred tribnal communities of India. The book is meant for general readers as well for those who wish to know deeply the inter-tribal relationship of any important tribe or a tribal group. The book gives the details of life style of all those tribes which are known to live in our country from thousands of years back to those who have arrived only recently, merely two centuries back. The book also describes the life styles of those tribal women who may have a dozen husbands or the tribal men who are still feared for their power of witchcraft. The book is however more concerned with the population, economy, religion and general culture of tribal communities who live in the snow-clad Himalayan highlands, burning deserts of Rajasthan or the lush green equatorial forests of Andamans.
