The book engages readers in a process of reflection on what it means to do research ‘with’ people rather than ‘on’ people by recounting a collaborative inquiry with the Katkari formerly called ‘Criminal Tribe’ and so-called ‘Primitive Tribal Group’ in Maharashtra India. The book is designed to help readers learn about participatory action research progressively and with a strong narrative grounded in issues facing Adivasi populations in South Asia and the real-life dilemmas of engaged research. As such it is accessible to both graduate and undergraduate students in many disciplines. This includes all of the standard social science departments teaching methods and promoting field-based research. The book will appeal to development practitioners and graduate students of Sociology Anthropology Development Studies and Tribal Studies.Printed Pages: 258.
