Alphabetical Dalit castes ethnography (iii). Bibliography. Index. Ethnography is a form of research focusing on the sociology of meaning through close field observation of sociocultural phenomena. Typically the ethnographer focuses on a community selecting informants who are known to have an overview of the activities of the community. The ethnographic method starts with selection of a culture review of the literature pertaining to the culture and identification of variables of interest typically variables perceived as significant by members of the culture. Dalit is a self designation for a South Asian group of people traditionally regarded as untouchables (outcastes) or of low caste. Dalits are a mixed population of numerous caste groups all over South Asia and speak various languages. It is impossible to differentiate between Dalits and the various other caste groups on the basis of phenotypes or genetics. The caste system is a social construct among South Asian people and has no genetic basis. While the caste system has been formally abolished under the Indian constitution there is still discrimination and prejudice against Dalits in South Asia. The aim of this encyclopaedia is to highlight the physical historical social political economic religious and cultural life of Indian Dalits. 648 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 74856
