Sorrow songs of woods: Adivasi-nature relationship in the Anthropocene in Manbhum

Mahato, Nirmal Kumar

₹ 995.00

This book focuses on the fine and complex relationship between Adivasis and Nature in Manbhum. It analyses the nature of colonial intervention in 'indigenous' societies and the politics of identity formation of Adivasis in relation to the transformation of their community system and the state. It provides an empirically detailed and region-specific study of the ethnic version of 'ecological nationalism' and seeks to locate, the concept of indigeneity in terms of values, identities and knowledge systems--within a unified 'indigenous worldview'.
