The debate on subalterns has drawn the attention of literary critics as well as social scientists. Subaltern historiography has led the scholars to think of the evolution of human race. This book looks at the subaltern from a perspective of the livelihood options available to them in Indian society which is transforming itself into a laissez-faire society. The options, opportunities and avenues available to this section of the society are also changing. This book looks at all these issues from a sociological perspective. There are a few theoretical articles also which explore the debate right from Antonio Gramsci to Ranajit Guha. Some significant empirical researches are also reported in the form of articles which relate the conditions at the grass root level. In its holistic impact the book provides a fresh perspective on the subaltern studies.
