Tribal development has given rise to several debates in our country. If the tribals of our country aspire to the level of development which will incorporate them into the regional society. Will they be able to retain their culture which gives them their identity? Another aspect of the debate is that in the case of the withdrawal of constitutional benefits given to the tribals, what will happen to their affairs? There has been a complete lack of self-sufficiency among them. And if the development is looked at with a comparative perspective, the varying tribal groups of the country are not at a uniform level of development. The present work dwells upon such issues and debates which are not only parts of academic exercise but also concerned with the day-to-day life of the tribals. The book also explores how the Minas in Rajasthan have cornered most of the benefits of development. The Bhils, who constitute the second numerical group in the state, lag far behind the Minas. They are far away from the level of development which the Minas have attained. The book calls for an urgent need to redefine the development levels of different tribal groups and to rearrange the priorities of benefits. It will be of immense use to academics, administrators and activists concerned with the tribal development.
