About the Book:

The spread of developed means of transport and communication and growth and diffusion of community and commercialized services have increased mobility and interaction among people of different sexes, castes, creeds, and regions. The role of modernity has been very profound in creating a social change in religion and caste allowing the people of backward classes to get acquainted to the outside world through education and cultural transformation. As tribal societies get more differentiated different bases are developing for the assertion of tribal identity. “A new system of social stratification and mobility is already on its way attacking the entrenched non-tribal exploiters and dehumanizing agencies and institutions. The present book explores the contemporary position of Indian tribes in respect of nature, degree of change and development on the one hand and their subsequent state of integration on the other. Students of social studies and social work will find this book as important reference along with the policy makers.
