This book is a valuable addition to the context of understanding the tribal situation of Arunachal Pradesh; and also for a critical cognition on the nature of inequality and stratification among the Sherdukpens. Sherdukpen is one of the major tribes of Arunachal Pradesh inhabiting the western most part of the state. The people of this community have a rich cultural heritage; their dance forms, songs, arts and crafts of magnificent beauty have enriched the culture of the state. Sherdukpen society is passing through a crucial phase of transition. This study attempts to understand the historicity and nature of stratification in the Sherdukpen society. An attempt has been made to see the implications of material as well as economic life on stratification within the society and on various traditional socio-political institutions, religious systems and on social structure and value systems. The work is based on extensive fieldwork on migration narratives and their economic, social and political life. Printed Pages: 244.
