The literature on tribes is extremely scattered through countless books, articles, news items etc. The author has heavily drawn on these divergent sources. Therefore, an attempt has been made to document the literature on the tribes of Andaman and Nicobar Islands under a single roof. The present work aims to achieve some ambitious goals. It presents not only a comprehensive view of the literature but also enhances the knowledge of researchers, scholars, planners etc. who are willing to delve deeper into different aspects of the tribes of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Being an important book, it gives an ethnographic information of the tribes along with a brief description of the islands, and includes 1996 statistical figures. It also highlights the tribal distribution of the Negritos in South East Asia through both text and maps. Useful data has been provided in form of numerous tables, through which one can get a glimpse of the Indian tribal situation. This document is of immense value as an indispensable reference tool. It covers almost all facets of tribals of Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
