The book Dalits in Contemporary India situates the Dalits with their social discrimination and discontents along with their assertion and movements in a wide ranging time frame from the later 19 century to the present day. It unfolds the various tenets of socio economic and political discrimination practised against them as well as their own discontents and the resultant assertion and movements during the period under reference. The articles included in this volume cover primarily the northern central and part of the Western besides part of the eastern regions of the country. These broadly analyse the Dalit issues within both the empirical and analytical frameworks which in turn provide meaningful insights for the theoretical understanding of the themes under discussion. In fact the opening article in the volume makes a headway in this direction. The volume in a way being a collective effort reflects views of both the insiders and outsiders on the Dalit issues but the etic views are not devoid of the desired empathy for the Dalit cause. 316 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 69017
