Naik, an overseas lecturer in cultural
anthropology at the London School of Oriental and African studies, deals here
with the Bhils of Rajpipla and West Khandesh. A general ethnography, this
document includes material on linguistics and physical anthropology. Also
covered in detail are the life cycle, religion, social structure, crime, and
economics. Pp. 255-344, and 349-351 have not been included in this collection,
inasmuch as they deal with transcriptions of oral literature and the possible
future of Bhil culture.
