In 1922, the adivasis of western India were commanded by a goddess--or Devi--to change their established way of life. Their collective efforts to obey this goddess quickly brought them into conflict with the locally dominant class of landlords and liquor dealers. In this pioneering study, Hardiman offers a detailed treatment of a religious movement that was transformed into a struggle for adivasi assertion.
