Detailed Product Description

Berkeley, University of California Press, 1982, 1st edition. 342 pp, b/w photos. New hardcover with dust jacket.

A study of the frictions between India's 40 million tribal people and the Hindu majority. 

Christoph von Furer-Haimendorf was Professor Emeritus of Asian Anthropology at University of London and was widely regarded as the leading authority on the Indian tribal people, their lore, and their way of life. In this illuminating study, he draws on observations among Indian tribal populations from 1940-80 to assess the success and failures of Government policies toward them.

His wide-ranging work encompasses economic, social change, and environmental perspectives to offer a unique resource for students and scholars of anthropology, sociology, environmental studies, and governmental policy.
