The papers included in this volume have discussed the marriage system of various ethnic communities of Arunachal Pradesh in a cultural perspective. The choice for discussion on a single social phenomenon namely marriage has a methodological significance in that in tribal communities no phenomenon can be treated in isolation it exists and functions as an integral part of the total world view of the community. All the presentations on marriage confirm to the above statement and herein lies the strength of this volume. Moreover most of the papers are emic presentations by scholars trained in an etic system of disciplinary frame which undoubtedly focuses on the issue of emic etic debate. The essence of the papers lies in that there are commonalities and differences in the marriage practices across the various groups and corroborate to psychic unity of E.B.Tylor at some level. But the differences add new dimensions of understanding to the studies on marriage when the concepts like bride price widow inheritance etc. are contested on the basis of empirical findings from many communities. Obviously the strength of the volume emanates from the attention on the distinct analytical issues and empirical findings in the realm of social institutions. Notwithstanding this the papers included in this volume also initiate a comprehensive exploration of the social dynamics in a comparative perspective. No doubt the book will come handy among the social scientists in general and students of tribal studies in particular not only in understanding a social phenomenon in a cultural perspective but also in contextualizing social dynamics and methodological issues. 326 pp. N° de ref. de la librería 69228
