The thirteen seminal essays in this volume investigate the failure of the welfare model of development as applied to tribal India, and the consequent efforts by tribes to better their lot by seeking political autonomy and/or the restoration of traditional rights to natural resourcesnamely, water, forest and land. The book contains case studies of little-known movements such as Dalitism in Jharkhand and the Kamatpur movement in Bengal. Providing a compact yet comprehensive account of the tribal experience of development in India, the contributors examine all the major issues affecting India's tribal population.
