Towards Inclusive Development of Adivasis

Social Exclusion and Adverse Inclusion: Development and Deprivation of Adivasis in India edited by Dev Nathan and Virginius Xaxa (New Delhi: Oxford University Press), 2012; pp XXII + 335, Rs 750.

This book is an outcome of an international seminar, “Adivasis/ST Communities in India: Development and Change” organised by the Institute of Human Development in August 2009. It constitutes a part of the earlier volumes Tribal Situation in India (1970s) edited by K S Singh, Tribal Society in India: Continuity and Change (1990s) edited by Mrinal Miri and From Tribe to Caste (1990s) edited by Dev Nathan. These volumes indicate the academic need to mainstream tribes in the perspective of inclusive policies and programmes. In particular, this volume introduces social exclusion as a framework to understand the tribal situation in India. Moreover, this initiative registers a difference from the earlier works as most of the seminar participants and contributors to this volume belong to the adivasi/scheduled tribe (ST) communities.
