Rycroft, Asoka Kumar Sen, Binay Kumar Pattnaik, Lidia Guzy, Jagannath Dash and others have critically dealt with such struggles as the Santal insurrection and ho protests in the colonial era, claims of self-determination and self-management of the resources, environmental movement, Adivasi resistance in the Niyamgiri Hills Naxalism/Maoism, industrial encroachments, land alienation dispossession and disempowerment. Also examined are statuses of constitutional safeguards and the Forest Rights Act. The north-east scenario is portrayed in terms of issues of tribal homelands, representative democracy, marginalization, exclusion and increasing dissent among minority tribes, abuse of land/forest rights, illegal logging and discourse on indigeneity. This volume will be of immense significance to all social scientists, and particularly to social anthropologists, sociologists, historians and political scientists. (jacket).
