Description

This collection includes statements on untouchability by leaders of the freedom movement—for example, Gokhale, Lajpat Rai, Ambedkar and Gandhi; essays on the history of the outcastes in the pre-colonial period; on the beginnings of Dalit consciousness and organised resistance to caste oppression; on the relationship between the nationalist movement and Dalits; and finally, essays locating the Dalits in the post-independence polity in India. This carefully edited compendium will be of use to students and scholars of history, sociology and political science in general and those in the area of ‘exclusion studies’ in particular.
