This book focuses on the historical perspectives of state formation in Orissa from sixth century AD and on the process of how tribals were integrated and their indigenous culture was assimilated into the Sanskritic mainstream life. The study of the regional cultural interaction between Orissa, Bengal and Assam has been well defined emphasizing the spread of egalitarian outlook through the Samkirtan movement of Sri Chaitanya. The period AD 1400-1700 in the history of eastern India has proved to be very important that it witnessed an emerging trend not only of the protest against social cleavages but also an endeavour to the assimilatory compromise with a changing direction of the order for social cohesion.
