The 11 essays in this volume explore different aspects of marginalization among the scheduled castes, the scheduled tribes, the backward classes, women, workers, refugees, minorities, physically challenged persons and so on. They show how from the margins of Indian society they mobilized themselves to take an active part in social protests and raised a voice against discrimination in different spheres of social life.
