Wonder That Is Culture
This book is an effort to unravel the contours of culture through the works dedicated to Professor Promode Kumar Misra, who probably was himself one of the most well known in the field of Cultural Anthropology in India. In this festschrift to him are included articles written by some of his friends and colleagues who are not necessarily his closest but who share a common ideological platform with him. The culture in this book has to do with the downtrodden, the exploited, the socially and economically disadvantaged, the peripheral in India as well as overseas. This culture is often ignored and maligned by its dominant counterpart but it is most subtle, sophisticated and integrative. Understanding this culture holds some hope for the future of the humanity as a whole. This book combines amateur authors with veterans, fuses tribes with castes, transcends boundaries between cultures, religions, and countries. There is also a lot of selfquestioning in this book. It should be of interest to those who are into tribal, caste and cultural studies and could be prescribed as a reference book for students of anthropology and sociology.
