This volume discuss a range of issues affecting the socio-economic and cultural life of adivasis in India and explore the long term continuities and discontinuities between different political regimes. They also reflect some of the concerns relating to methodology and resources, historiography and colonialism, the impact of missionaries, gender issues, the agrarian situation, famines and migration. As such, these essays deal with different aspects of the histories of Adivasi communities – from Rajasthan to Bengal – keeping in mind the inner lives of these communities. Notions of ‘tribal issues’ and ‘tribal studies’ are also examined, and the impact of globalization and liberalization upon adivasis in contemporary India is given due critical attention.
