Title : The Aghria: A Peasant Caste on a Tribal Frontier
Author : Uwe Skoda
Edition : Hardbound
ISBN : 9788173046162
Pages : 607p.
Year of Pub : 2005
Price : Rs 1,195.00
This book explores the life of the Aghrias and their place at the interface between tribal and caste societies. Migrating into predominantly tribal areas, the Aghrias cleared the forests and gradually experienced a social ascent, becoming revenue collectors or `village kings` in several princely states. These pioneers of state formation decisively shaped an emerging mixed society. The emphasis in this book is on the themes of mythology, social relations and inter-community networks, kingship, kinship relations, life cycle rituals and the amalgamation of the cycles on the basis of cultural symbols.
