The focus of this book is an migration, social mobility and stratification of the Bhil Society of Tribal Sub Plan Area. The Static nature and homogeneity in Bhil Society has now become a thing of the past. Throughout history theirmigration was the outcome of famine and war. After independence, constitutional safeguards helped them for it to get education and government jobs. Scarcity of land also forced the tribals to migrate. Migration helped some of the tribals families improving social status. Hence, the social mobility observed among the tribals has surely given the tribals a new status. Homegeneous society is connecting into heterogeous society. The problem of migration, mobility and stratification assumes greater importance it it is examined from the perspectice of tribal identity.
