Scheduled Caste Elites and Social Change

Besides pointing to the need for understanding the range of permissibility in Islam these accounts also suggest that a proper understanding of kinship and related institutions cannot be acquired without taking into consideration the context of business of living. It is to be hoped that this volume will contribute substantially to expose the futility of polemics built up around the monolithic concept of Muslim community. Many of these articles have not been able to make full use of their potential in the form of data. They can be explored further. It is a moot point whe- tlier greater editorial inputs would have been able to bring in some uniformity of terms and concepts and greater com- parability. One has to be wary of over- editing undertaken in the name of excellence which often results in effacing the personality of an author and subtly distorts his arguments. But removal of some obvious errors of definition and some trimming in many places would have been welcome.
