About the Book
Caste-based exclusion is a complex phenomenon encapsulating multi-dimensional, multifaceted and cascading ramifications for those on whom it is meted out. Caste in India has not only framed the social and economic structure of Indian society and its people, but also has been one of the most callous means of exclusion in India.
Since times immemorial, those placed at the bottom of caste hierarchy have suffered the worst. They are excluded among the excluded. The process of discrimination needs a holistic understanding to appreciate the graffiti and the gravity of marginalization and deprivation in everyday lives and relations. The contemporary discourses on caste-based exclusion have so far focussed on understanding the problem from ‘the outside and above’ perspective. This volume provides views on perspectives from ‘the inside and below’ and attempts to span full circle of prevalence, magnitude and structure of isolation experienced by Dalits in our society and also suggests approaches for amendments.
Eleven chapters contributed by senior scholars from different spheres of humanities are representative of the state of Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Haryana and Maharashtra. The multidimensional nature of this book is expected to help the readers to understand the wider spectrum of exclusion in a detailed manner. The volume will be a helpful resource material for the students and researchers of sociology, minority studies and development studies.
