Health and nutrition are two interrelated issues which have drawn the attention of scholars across the world. This book, which is the outcome of a national seminar, examines different issues relating to tribal health and nutrition in India in specific context of their culture, local ecology, voluntary efforts and institutional intervention. The broad conclusion of most of the papers included in this volume highlights pitiable conditions in this regard. Scholars have however suggested ways and means to deal with inhibiting factors responsible for slow and lop-sided process of improvement in health and nutritional status of tribes. Also, some fruitful suggestions have been made in several articles. Altogether this book is a valuable contribution to the field of tribal health and nutrition. Its study would profit both the students and researchers of Sociology, Social Anthropology and Social Work.
