About the Book
A SOCIAL AND HISTORICAL STUDY ON TRIBE, WOMEN AND ENVIRONMENT IN BENGAL
The edited volume has questioned the very idea of ‘development ‘. Now a days it has become a key jargon among the policy makers , irrespective of colors. The articles in the volume have stressed the need to revert back . Development for whom? Who are gaining and who are being thrown into oblivion ? The book is divided in five sections. The impact of ‘development’ on tribal people, environment, women, education and demography are analysed from socio-economic and historical context. The use of primary data, maps, tables,charts, diagrams and above all the index has made the text ready reference for the scholars to question this paradigm of development.
