People at the Bottom: A Portrait of the Scavengers
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8170229065 / 9788170229063; Hardcover; New; New; 
Scavengers in India constitute the lowest rung of Indian society. They are, in fact, the people at the bottom. They are the real Antyaja as conceived by Mahatma Gandhi. Although the scavengers are with us from the beginning of civilisation, there are no detailed study of their living and working conditions, their troubles and tribulations, their hopes and frustrations. The cluster of castes engaged in this profession has been looking to the Indian civil society for their salvation. In spite of the recommendations of many committees and commissions they have not bee liberated from the shakles of poverty and pollution. They have been forced to live a life of degradation bereft of human dignity. Their state is indeed a living disgrace for the country. The work is based on an empirical study covering 5200 households in urban and rural settings in Bihar. It is intended to give a glimpse of the living and working conditions of the scavenger castes and to bring out the impact of different welfare programmes for their liberation and rehabilitation in the gender and human rights perspectives. Efforts to bring the scavengers form the margin to mainstream of Indian society and ultimately to empower them have also been assessed in terms of the success achieved. Towards the end of the study and number of steps have been suggested to speed up this process. Printed Pages: 226. 112555

The Tribal Village in Bihar: A Study in Unity and Extension
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1968; 8121504317 / 9788121504317; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
From the early fifties there was a spurt of interest among social anthropologists, both Indian and foreign, in village studies, however, covered the tribal communities with this focus. This study seeks to fill this gap for the Chhotanagpur tribal area. It embraces in its wide sweep an extensive coverage of the tribal scene in Bihar. Taking villages predominantly inhabited by different tribes on various socio-economic levels, the author tries to set up the model of an average tribal village in Bihar. He examines the extent to which such a village can be viewed as a unity and also its extensions in various social fields. The danger of studying a village in isolation from its neighbourhood or from its history has been avoided. The entire social process has been analyzed in the background of the history of the region.
