From 1937 until his sudden death Dhirendra Nath Majumdar (1903-1960) spent many summers in the field of the Jaunsar-Bawar region, especially among the Khasa people. This book, published posthumously, is the result of those studies and of his observations of the changing caste structures of rural villages through community development work. D. N. Majumdar was a pioneer of Indian anthropological research, head of the Department of Anthropology at Lucknow University, and founding editor of Eastern Anthropologist.
