It seeks to examine the social origins material basis and crystalization of the dominant upper castes in a long term historical and sociological perspective. Taking caste as the central problematic of historiography this study views caste as a dynamic historically evolved structure of power relations of domination and subordination. The historical trajectory of the evolution of caste system is sought to be examined not merely in terms of its materiality but also in its dialectical inter relationship with the social cultural and ideological intellectual domains. Hence this study instead of viewing caste as a cultural construct by the Brahmanical forces seeks to unravel the dynamics of Indian social system by viewing it as determined by the dialectic of upper caste dominance and lower caste resistance. 260 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 55993
