Item Description: Mittal Publications, New Delhi, 2004. N.A. Book Condition: New. xi, 297 p. : ill., maps ,Papers selected in the volume were presented in the seminar entitled Dynamics of Tribal Villages in Arunachal Pradesh: Emerging Realities. These papers have focused on one or the other aspects of village life in tribal villages of Arunachal Pradesh and obviously have made a departure from earlier studies on Indian villages as peasant communities in which villages were studied with a view to understand the ?nature? of the villages and dimensions of Indian civilization. Such studies were comprehensive explorations for an understanding of village communities as ?isolates? or ?part societies? But the essence of the present volume lies in focusing attention on the nature of various aspects of village life, which independently reflects upon an integrative appreciation. Whether any aspect of life in tribal villages has intra- or inter-village functional significance, the characteristic feature that it displays is ?embeddedness? A phenomenon like labour exchange, for example, does not exist in economic sphere of the activities; it rather embodies characteristics of cultural and social realities. Broadly, the strength of this volume emanates from the study of 20 villages of 12 tribes in the state mostly by scholars belonging to the village and the tribe itself. Undoubtedly, emphasizing on emic perceptions of the transition realities, it has made a radical departure. Therefore, the volume will add a new dimension to village studies academically and to the understanding of development practitioners who are interested in rural development in this era of globalisation.

Item Description: Mittal Publications, New Delhi, 2007. N.A. Book Condition: New. xxiv, 248 p. : ill., maps ,The interest to study the 'tribes' has greatly contributed to the origin and growth of the discipline of Anthropology. However, over the years, the discipline has got diversified encompassing themes and communities pertaining to both the tribe and non-tribe categories. Civilizational studies, village studies, ecological studies, study of urban and industrial societies, etc. are a few examples. Nevertheless, the significance of the study of tribes has not been reduced with the diversification of the discipline of Anthropology. Rather, growing inter-disciplinary interests in their study have been contributing, strengthening and evolving what we see as 'tribal studies' in recent years. Not only academics, but NGOs and GOs also do take interest in tribal studies mainly in development perspectives. Conversely, concepts and approaches evolved from the study of the tribes are being applied to the understanding of current issues like identity, development, etc. in multidisciplinary perspectives. The present volume with four thematic divisions, namely, Culture and Identity, Expanding Frontiers in Tribal Studies, Development Perspectives and Social Process and thirteen papers under these divisions broadly initiates a comprehensive exploration of the dynamics of tribal studies. Obviously, the strength of the volume emanates from the growing significance and emerging attention to the distinct analytical issues and empirical findings in the realm of tribal studies. No doubt, the volume will come handy among the NGO activists, planners, bureaucrats and social scientists in general and the students of tribal studies in particular not only in understanding the expanding frontiers of Knowledge in the realm, but also in contextualizing the dynamics of perspectives and methodological issues.

Item Description: Mittal Publications, New Delhi, 2004. N.A. Book Condition: New. x, 323 p. : ill., maps ,The issue of development in north-east region has been a challenge to planners since independence. The region has its own opportunities and constraints, strengths and weaknesses and needs and priorities, but the development initiatives follow the national perspectives of development. Of course, there are special packages and programmes, autonomous corporations, such as, the NERAMAC, NEDFi, NEEPCO, etc., and institutions like NEC (North East Council) and DONER (Department of Development of North Eastern Region), still the region is a backward region in the country. The development initiatives in the region have been shifting along with changing national development perspectives, which otherwise are influenced by changing international development discourse. Naturally, in this era of globalization and liberalization, there is a shift in development paradigm from top down approach to bottom up, from people around development to development around people, from emphasis on growth factor to the concern for sustainable development and from centralized initiatives to democratic decentralistion in making economic decisions. Associated with such a shift in development paradigm is changing development initiatives in north east region. The papers included in this volume initiate a comprehensive exploration of the strategies of development drawing upon field experiences on different issues. Broadly, the strength of the volume emanates from the analysis of the potentials, challenges of development. The essence of the volume lies in focusing attention on the distinct analytical issues and empirical findings in the realm of strategy formulation and policy-making in the context of globalisation and development. No doubt, the book will come handy among the students of development studies and development practitioners in general and in the north east region in particular to understand the content of development in the context of globalisation in a right perspective.

Item Description: Mittal Publications, New Delhi, 2006. N.A. Book Condition: New. 2 v. ,Marriage is both culture universal and culture specific; it exists not only in all known cultures, but every culture has defined the system of marriage in a way to get expressions through it. The papers included in this Volume discuss the phenomenon of marriage as embedded in culture. Marriage, no doubt, forms a subset of a culture and thus presents a cultural manifestation, but more significantly it displays interconnectedness with other phenomena of the culture. Arguably, then the chocie for discussion on a single phenomenon, namely, marriage, emanates from the methodological significance that in tribal communities no phenomenon, can be treated in isolation; it exists and functions as an integral part of the total worldview of the community. All the presentations on marriage conform to the above statement and herein lies the strength of this volume. Moreover, most of the papers are emic presentations by scholars trained in an etic system of disciplinary frame and naturally focus on the issue of emic-etic debate. The essence of the papers further lies in that there are commonalities and differences in the marriage practices across the various groups and corroborate the 'psychic unity' of E.B. Tylor at some level. But the differences add new dimensions of understanding to the studies on marriage when concepts like 'bride price', 'widow inheritance' etc. are contested on the basis of empirical findings from many communities. Obviously, the strength of the volume emanates from the attention on the distinct analytical issues and empirical findings in the realm of culture specific social institutions. Notwithstanding this, the papers included in this Volume also initiate a comprehensive exploration of the social dynamics in cross-cultural perspectives. No doubt, the book will come handy among the social scientists in general and students of tribal studies if particular not only in understanding a culture specific phenomenon but also in contextualizing cultural dynamics and methodological issues.

Item Description: Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: VDM Verlag Dr. Müller | A critical insight into the concept of foraging mode of thought | The present monograph presents a critical insight into the concept of foraging mode of thought, a binary explanatory tool, which conceptualises the social reality into foraging and accumulation categories. Within this conceptual frame an empirical study of the Sulungs, a forager community of Arunachal Pradesh in Northeast India, whose social reality is a manifestation of its own cultural image and an extended relationship with neighbouring Nyishi tribe, subordinate by any standard, is attempted. Precisely, the context explored in the volume is a theoretical presentation of empirical reality drawing on both ethnography and secondary sources of data. Undoubtedly, the book will provide a analytical framework for any one who is interested in studying critically the social image of pre-literate and subordinate foraging communities in transition. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 105 gr | 64 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9783639192490
