This work is a comprehensive survey of the development of primitive tribal groups in India with main thrust on Lodhas of West Bengal and Orissa, Chenchus of Andhra Pradesh and Totos of West Bengal. Detailed in well-written sixteen chapters with a bibliography, the author has given very minute data regarding several welfare programmes in these regions.
Dr Mohanty’s painstaking work also includes a rare map showing tribal population, literacy rates in India, sex ratio, displacement of tribals, bonded labour and tribes in below poverty line. All this information would be useful for readers of this book.
