This is a book on action anthropology which narrates and evaluates the manner in which change was brought into the life of the Yanadi who in the year 1970 were still using Stone Age methods for making fire. The juxtaposition of space age technology and primitivism at Sri harikota is brought out very effectively in the day to day interaction between the anthropologists, the SHAR administration and the Yanadi inhabitants whose lives were undergoing a major transformation. Here, significantly enough, the anthropologist emerges, not as an expert or consultant, but as a fellow human who gathers facts, diagnoses day to day problems, suggests strategies and helps in actualizing suggested solutions. His role is thus an enlarged one which demands his cooperation, understanding and total involvement in order to achieve the desired goals. The book manages to bet behind the scenes of a unique and highly successful experience which could serve as a model for an experimental approach particularly in the context of the establishment of large industrial undertakings in remote and inaccessible tribal areas in India and elsewhere. Planners, administrations in addition to anthropologists and sociologists would benefit from a perusal of this interesting experiment. Printed Pages: 138.
