Description: Why are human beings sometimes so cruel to each other? What are the values, beliefs and 'myths' that motivate atrocious behaviour, masking it as heroism? And why have so many 'civilized' people oppressed tribal people and exploited them so ruthlessly, in India and elsewhere? In the belief that a truly human anthropology can find real answer to such fundamental questions, this book sets out to analyse the structures of power and authority which British rule imposed over a tribal people of Central India.
