Title: Caste : Origin, Function andDimensions of Change
Author: Jaiswal, Suvira
Description: This work provides a critique of the current theories of caste system which locate its essence in endogamy and argues that the present morphology of caste is the result of the changes the institution has undergone over centuries of its existence, but its origins are embedded in the ecology of the Vedic cattle-keepers. It also points to the role of caste in providing unity in diversity.
