Ecological and Social Change in a Forest Region in India: A Case of North Andhra, 1890s to 1970"

The present study proposes to understand ecological and social change in a forest region in India, from 1890s to 1970. It looks at factors like migrations, promotion of settled agriculture and their affects on adivasi society. The contradictions in the colonial policy for adivasis led certain social groups to bridge the gap between colonial conceptions of caste and tribe, field and forest, plains and hills and accentuate the process of ecological change"
