Nomads in South Asia brings together a selection of ground-breaking essays on Nomads and their lifestyles in South Asia, which has the worlds largest nomadic population. Reflecting colonial and orientalist attitudes and biases, the study of this section of the population has been largely ignored, with little or no empirical research being carried out so far. This volume is the first attempt to present comprehensive information, theoretically informed discussions and tentative conclusions about the ideology, practice of migration and mobility of South Asian nomads. This informative and thought- provoking book provides a rich and wide field for study, and the essays included span a vast region, covering a variety of ecological, economic and political settings. It will be of immense value to scholars and students of sociology, anthropology and historians.
