Verrier Elwin (1902–1964)

Description

Verrier Elwin's essential humanism, theological training, and Gandhian outlook make his work truly distinct. Credited for unveiling before the world the great civilization of India's tribal communities, Elwin's work is essential to any discussion on anthropological writing in India. The Oxford India Elwin, part of the prestigious Oxford India Collection, draws from a wide range of Elwin's writings. Combining autobiographical and scholarly writing, and embellished with more than one hundred photographs and illustrations, this detailed yet eminently readable volume offers a tantalizing glimpse into India's rich and varied tribal culture. From the jungles of Madhya Pradesh, where the story begins, this book follows Elwin through Bastar and Orissa to the North-east where he eventually settles. A useful reference to the best of Elwin for those already familiar with his work, this book will also introduce interested readers to the charm of his writing and to a fascinating world that is fast disappearing. In an Introduction written especially for this volume, Ganesh N. Devy pays tribute to the man and his contribution towards revealing the civilization and beauty of the tribal people.
