Title Review

A study of the Adivasis of Bangladesh, the book discusses their challenges and their defence strategies. Presenting a variety of information, providing anecdotes and using illustrations like pictures and maps, the volume is a comprehensive effort that profiles the major Adivasi communities, describes little-known ones, and deals with their number and spatial distribution. It takes up crucial issues concerning their lives and livelihood, relating to land, forests, access to commons, agricultural practices, and aspects relating to their political life, language and identity. It calls for the state to place a legal framework that would pursue positive discrimination in their favour.
