Bio-cultural Development of Scheduled Tribes

Policies and Issues

Edited by: P.K. Misra, H.K. Bhat, K.K. Misra

Notwithstanding the attention paid to the welfare of India's scheduled tribes during the six and a half decades of independence, these tribes are still at the bottom level of human development within the country. They are gradually being dispossessed of whatever resources they had under their control in the past. In fact, the modern development paradigm cannot address the problems of these people and there is an urgent need for an alternative paradigm. This book, which is an outcome of a national seminar in India, discusses this lack of development among the country's scheduled tribes. The book contains papers on nutrition and growth, tribal economy, tribal development, the concept of tribe, health care, disease, etc.
