The Munda of Central India is a linguistically related collection of tribes in Central India. This book is an account of the social organization of these tribes, consisting of around six million people and divided into a number of separate ethnic groups. Parkin's account of these tribes is
unique in its departure from studying one single tribe. He uses the comparative method to study several Munda-speaking tribes of Central India, making an original contribution to tribal studies.
