Tribal Communities and Social Change

Edited by:

© 2005 | 258 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
In this volume, renowned scholars examine a diverse range of tribal groups including: the Bhils, Gonds, Khasis and Koyas in India; the aboriginal Indians, Metis and Innuits in Canada; and tribal cultures in South Africa, Kenya and Malawi.

Focusing on the social history of these tribes, the book addresses key issues such as: primitive law, crime, kinship structures, education, religion and women and how the impact of colonialism has affected them. It also asks the questions: Does an acceptable definition of the concept of 'tribe' exist? and What is meant by the 'social integration' of tribals?
