Encyclopaedia of Indian Castes, Races and Tribes (In 5 Volumes)

Gyanendra Yadav (Author)
Synopsis All developed social systems are stratified. No society is a mass of individuals. European society was organized along class, guilds, and religion (Jews and gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, etc.) India had castes, or more properly, jatis. Castes in India are different than classes in the West. Castes are not economically structured. The concept of human races has often been misused, and the whole issue has therefore come under intense criticism. A tribe, viewed historically or developmentally, consists of a social group existing before the development of, or outside of, states. Many anthropologists use the term to refer to societies organized largely on the basis of kinship, especially corporate descent groups (see clan and lineage). Some theorists hold that tribes represent a stage in social evolution intermediate between bands and states. The Book contains chapter on Indian Caste System, Human Races and the Indigenous Tribes. Alphabetical List of Indian Castes and Tribes is also included in content of this book.
