S C Dube's classic work The Kamar, originally published in 1951, was written at a crucial juncture in Indian history -- the end of colonial rule and the arrival of Indian independence. It is an important ethnography of an exploited and marginalized tribe in transition and a formative text in the history of Indian anthropology. BLThis study is based on careful fieldwork and enlivened by ethnographic sensitivity related to the author's long familiarity with region and subject BLIt presents a pioneering portrait of the Kamar, an adivasi community of hunter-gatherers and shifting-cultivators of Chattisgarh and Orissa BLCombining brevity of style, economy of expression, and simplicity of structure, in the book, Dube discusses key themes in anthropology and sociology: economic life, social organization, and customary law, myth, legend, and ritual religion, magic and witchcraft and questions of 'cultural contact' and 'tribal adjustment'. BLNandini Sundar's insightful introduct ion situates Dube and his work in the current preoccupations of the discipline. Leela Dube, in a prefact to the new edition talks about the writing of The Kamar. Printed Pages: 260.
