About this Item: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.?, 1988. Hardcover. Condition: New. Third. Contents: Preface. Introduction. 1. Jajmani functional responsibilities in Karimpur. 2. Jajmani compensation and rights in Karimpur. 3. Disintegrating features of the Hindu Jajmani system. 4. Evaluation of the Hindu Jajmani system. "The Hindu Jajmani System remains a fascinating subject for students of anthropology because of the complex Inter-change of services and goods between the various castes. Because there has been little else written regarding the economic aspects of caste and the steady demand for this book, it is reprinted in a third edition. "This study is of the Jajmani system in a North India village and the author's information comes from personal experiences and knowledge. The functional responsibilities are described in detail from the highest to the lowest caste. This includes every kind of service from religious instruction to entertainment by dancing girls. In return for these services appropriate compensation is given in the form of service and/or payment in cash or kind. Members of each caste are obliged to fulfil their duties and realize the rights. It they do not carry out these obligations the village can put pressure and see that they do so. Even grazing rights of animals feature in this system. The last two sections show how the Jajmani system has been disintegrating gradually, and discusses its advantages and disadvantages.". Seller Inventory # MRML-9788121500531

About this Item: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1988. Hard Cover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Third Edition. The Hindu Jajmani System was first published in 1936. To this day it remains the most standard and only work which deals with the Jajmani system. It defines the role of the caste in the economic life of a village community. The author describes the functions assigned by Manu to various castes and how these caste groups interact with each other in the production of goods and services needed by the village community and they try at the same time to function within the framework fixed by Manu despite the social, economic and political changes during centuries. The impact of economic development through industrialization has dealt a crushing blow to the Jajmani system. Growth of cities, migration of rural labour, mechanization of agriculture, etc., have made Jajmani system irrelevant today in the Indian village. Yet traces of the system continue to linger. It is an important book for those engaged in the study of village economics and role of caste in it. Economic historians will find it a valuable sourcebook. Printed Pages: 158. Size: 15 Cms x 23 Cms.
