Bringing together a holistic theoretical perspective drawing from sociology anthropology and postcolonial history the author argues that witchcraft accusations among the adivasi worker communities in the tea plantations of West Bengal are a protest against the plantation management. Thus the witchcraft accusations are not as ‘exotic and primitive rituals of a backward’ adivasi community during times of stress but rather as a powerful protest organized by a marginalized community against its oppressors. The book also illuminates how witchcraft accusations should be interpreted within the backdrop of labor-planters relationship characterized by rigidity of power patronage and social distance.Printed Pages: 210.
