Description : Traditionaly, the tribals lived in isolated areas which are now much exposed to the outside world and influence. In the recent past a number of tribal unrests, movements, tension and conflicts have been noted. Though in a majority of the areas these movements were initiated by the emerging elite sections of the tribals, the exploitation of the non-tribals and the myopic governmental policies and approaches, have often stimulated the scourge of unrest accordingly. The book is divided into 6 parts and covers a numbers of issues related to tribal political systems, tribal involvement in electoral processes, movements and unrest, nature of identity crisis and ethnocultural orientation.
