This book presents an insight into the historical perspective of Indian tribes, their demography, constitutional and legal provisions relating to various safeguards for their protection and development. It also gives information about their life, skills, art and culture.

The book provides interesting informative material concerning anthropological, socio-economic and constitutional aspects on Scheduled Tribes. It emphasizes that the tribals are now, not satisfied by mere quantification of funds but aspire for concrete results, effective participation in decision making process, close association in implementation of programmes concerning them and their own leadership in the areas having dominant tribal population.

There is need for serious review of the policy adopted for their development. Recalling the famous words of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the First Prime Minister of India. The Tribals may be allowed to develop on their won genius and we should not impose anything on them. These golden words are highly relevant even today for planning for tribal development.
