The relationship between tribes and the state with reference to the Indian legal structure is the focus of this book which fills a gap in the literature. Examining three tribes of India, the author traces the historical roots of their dispossession, their engagement with and subjugation by the British, and how their ordeal of disempowerment continues, even after independence. The book offers new research data from a variety of sources and by bringing together insights from anthropology, ancient history and law, it draws political conclusions that are deeply relevant in today's world.
