These excellent essays consider the rights of subordinated peoples on several continents. The contributors base their comprehensive analysis on the Tribals and Untouchables of India, the Aborigines of Australia, the Indians of Brazil, indigenous people of the old USSR, the blacks of South Africa, and women under fundamentalist Islam. Through their detailed study, they recognize that subordinate conditions must be primarily overthrown by the subordinated peoples themselves; and there are now clear signs that these people have begun to stand up for themselves as never before. The contributors which include David Maybury-Lewis, James Crawford, and Ramachandra Guha, are all experts in the field and their individual discussions of subordinated peoples will be essential reading for sociologists and those interested in Subaltern studies.
