Title Review

The tribal and the rural Folk in India are the distinctive custodians of the traditional knowledge which they have been utilising through the times and spaces. A unique source of interesting, useful and scholarly information about the age-old traditional knowledge system among different Indian communities from various geo-physical habitational contexts—this book is an anthology of over a score of research oriented articles, written by eminent multi-disciplinary social scientists from different universities and research institutions of the country. Within the wider field of indigenous knowledge, the specific subjects covered in these articles are wide ranging from ecological farming and horticulture to ethno medicine and traditional health care, wood craft, textile, forestry, fishery, traditional wisdom and so on. Besides its use for the general reader, the book is expected to generate the research oriented contemplation on Indian indigenous knowledge system.
