Dalits in Modern India: Vision and Values by S. M. Micheal

This volume maps the aspirations and struggle of the marginalized Dalit masses for a new humanity based on the values of equality, social justice, and human dignity. While situating itself within the contemporary project of Dalit emancipation, the book explores the social, economic, and cultural content of the Dalit transformation in modern India. The collection of articles is presented in four parts: Part I deals with the historical material on the origin and development of untouchability in the Indian civilization Part II contests mainstream explanations and shows that the Dalit vision of Indian society is different from that of the upper castes Part III offers a critique of the Sanskritic perspective of traditional Indian society and provides field-based portraits of Hinduisation of Adivasis in Gujarat, Dalit patriarchy in Maharashtra and Dalit power politics in Uttar Pradesh Part IV concentrates on the economic condition of the Dalits
