A very important introduction to B.R.Ambedkar and what ails this country. The first article on caste details the issue so well and is written in such a technical way, amazes you. How I would update a Bug report on a software Bug. Have always found reading the source is so much better that reading commentaries on it, to some extent that is true for this volume also. Sharmila Rege's introduction is good but many a times too technical for me. Compulsory reading for every Indian.
It will tell you about how much Ambedkar has done for the cause of women and has brought together the question of caste and gender in the discussions of Parliament in the way no other leader, politician has. Also, theorized their interconnection a great deal.
