It expounds the history of Dalit emancipation, with special emphasis on the role played by the leaders individually and collectively for the liberation of their brethren from 'untouchability'. It, however covers all the aspects of the Dalit Movement succinctly. This book is, obviously based on primary sources of information. Certain facts were duly confirmed and corroborated by other sources like documents and records in addition to personal interviews of the respective leaders or their next of kins. It has been objectively analysed, properly interpreted and systematically arranged in a consolidated form. It would be certainly useful as a ready reference to the Scholars, interested in undertaking intensive research in this field.
