Majority of the Books written about upliftment, development and Empowerment of the Scheduled Castes were base on field experience. This book, though based on field study, is rich in theory. One exclusive and exhaustive chapter in the book explains about empowerment issues pertaining to Scheduled Castes, up to date and in detail. Unlike many other books that concentrate only on one or two development variables, this book is a comprehensive work on education, occupation, Political participation, social status and empowerment of Scheduled Castes. It is hoped that this book will be of much use researchers, academicians and planners.
