Manis Kumar Raha (Editor) Prabodh Kumar Bhowmick (Editor)
Synopsis India has a substantial number of tribal population distributed in different states and union territories. They live in different ecological settings and have different cultural patterns, different economy, different social organizations, and systems of social control. They have embraced different religious beliefs and practices. They have their own health-care system. Though all these distinct cultural patterns have made them distinct, still their contact with other non-tribal people and dominant cultures, has brought marked changes in their socio-cultural life. This book has included forty nine articles and these have highlighted different aspects of the tribal life and activities like ethnicity and ethnic identity, education status, economic condition, social structure, health, nutrition and sanitation, women and children and development strategy. This book will definitely be very helpful to the academicians, scholars, research personnel, in understanding the tribal life in India and also to the planners, administrators social workers and others for planning and implementing different development programmes for the benefit of the tribal people of our country.
