Dr B.R. Ambedkar: A Study in Just Society

By- James Massey

Published in association with Centre
for Dalit/Subaltern Studies

The theme ‘just society’ is the main subject which runs throughout this work, as envisaged by Babasaheb Dr. B.R. Ambedkar. The entire discussion is based mainly upon his original writings. Besides the main theme, this work also carries the detailed discussions on the related themes, which include: ‘Buddha’s Dhamma’, ‘Dalits and the Conversion’, ‘Christianity and the Dalit Christians’, ‘Dalits: A Minority’ and ‘Framing the Constitution’. The author intentionally has allowed
Dr Ambedkar to speak for himself, therefore the readers will find many quotations throughout this work. The themes discussed are most relevant today, therefore it is being offered to the readers with this belief that Dr B.R. Ambedkar’s thoughts can became the basis of dealing with the current problems related to the Dalits, tribals, women, minorities and other weaker sections of the Indian society.
