Tribal Movements in India (In 2 Volumes)

K.S. Singh (Editor)
Synopsis The Anthropological Survey of India (ASI) conducted a survey of ongoing tribal movements in different parts of the country in 1976 and organized a Seminar in September that year to evaluate its findings.  Among those who presented papers were anthropologists and other scholars including historians, sociologists, political scientists and administrators.  Besides there were tribal scholars who provided the insiders' views and also social workers.  All these papers were divided into two volumes: The first volume contains twenty-four papers on the north-east and the second volume has twenty-five papers on movements elsewhere in the country.  Tribal movements in the north-east are entirely different from those elsewhere in the country and stand in a category by themselves because of the unique geopolitical situation of the region and its historical background.  The movements covered in this book include the Naga movement, the Zeliangrong movement, the ethnic and script movements of Manipur, the Paite identity movement and the Mizo movement.  This composite collection is an important contribution to tribal studies in India which will be found useful by sociologists, political scientists, researchers, administrators and interested laymen.
