Part I deals with the historical material on the origin and development of untouchability in Indian civilisation.
Part II contests mainstream explanations and shows that the Dalit vision of Indian society is different from that of the upper castes.
Part III offers a critique of the Sanskritic perspective of traditional Indian society, and fieldwork-based portraits of the Hinduisation of Adivasis in Gujarat, Dalit patriarchy in Maharashtra and Dalit power politics in Uttar Pradesh.
Part IV concentrates on the economic condition of the Dalits.
