|Publisher:||DELTA BOOK WORLD|
|Other Details||9.00x6.00 inches|
This work 'Tribes and Castes of Central Provinces of India' as being culturally important and is part of the knowledge base of civilization and presents an ethnological account dealing with the inhabitants of the region as well as contains the articles on religions and sects as being necessary to render it a complete ethnological account of the population.
This book is the result of the arrangement made by the Government of India, on the suggestion of the late Sir Herbert Risley, for the preparation of an ethnological account dealing with the inhabitants of each of the principal Provinces of India. The work for the Central Provinces was entrusted to the author, and its preparation, undertaken in addition to ordinary official duties, has been spread over a number of years. The prescribed plan was that a separate account should be written of each of the principal tribes and castes, according to the method adopted in Sir Herbert Risley's Tribes and Castes of Bengal. This was considered to be desirable as the book is intended primarily as a work of reference for the officers of Government, who may desire to know something of the customs of the people among whom their work lies. It has the disadvantage of involving a large amount of repetition of the same or very similar statements about different castes, and the result is likely therefore to be somewhat distasteful to the ordinary reader.
