This volume focuses on themes of exclusion and inclusion vis-a-vis Adivasis in India. It locates issues of development and impediments to their growth within a larger regional, national, and even global, context. The discussion centres on the states of Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa,Meghalaya, Nagaland, and Tripura, which have significant Adivasi populations. It also analyses in-depth issues such as child mortality, hunger, poverty, livelihoods, gender, linguistic diversity, agriculture, and the development process. The book provides a guide for formulating policy in order toovercome deprivation faced by the Adivasis. In doing so, it highlights three important issues: the need to eliminate exclusion in access to services; to accept land and property rights as granted to other citizens; and to ensure adequate representation and voice to the Adivasis in deciding policiesrelated to their lives and welfare.
