The Silenced Drums

A Review of Tribal Economic Development

Summary of the Book

In an era of globalisation and privatisation, when the entire world economy is undergoing structural changes with wide-ranging ramifications to the developing countries, the fate of tribal people is a matter of concern to administrators and development agencies like NGOs, banks and others. There is a need to ensure sustainable development of tribals through innovative interventions and funding from international institutions and the Government. The book analyses various issues and problems of tribals in India and Orissa in particular. It is the first book of its kind on tribal economic development which deals with the specific problems and needs of the tribals. Due to historical reasons, tribal society has not been able to catch up with the changing needs of society. Indifferent and unrealistic policies not only drive tribal people to absolute poverty but also drive them out of their natural habitats. Keeping this in mind, the book discusses various aspects of tribal development in a pragmatic and realistic way.
