Editors Note The book examines traditional knowledge systems in conjunction with biomedical elements to promote effective health education. Focusing particularly on malaria in a culturally and socio-economically stratified population in three ecologically differing rural zones---coastal, irrigated plains, and dry highland---and one urban site in Surat district, Gujarat, it aims to assist health interventionists in spreading efficacious health education and awareness among the masses. The findings of the study in this region of high malarial prevalence can be seen to be representative for the region, extending to the rest of India, and by implication to similar settings in other parts of the world.||His major publications include Land Acquistion, Displacement and Resettlement in Gujarat: 1947-2004 (2009; co-authored), Communal Violence and Minorities: Gujarat Society in Ferment (2006; co-edited); Globalisation, Hindu Nationalism and Christians in India (2002); Poor in Urban India: Study of Surat Slums (2001; co-authored), and The Thakors of North Gujarat (1995). He is currently working on a manuscript entitled `Changing Behaviour of Forests and its Impact on Tribal Livelihood in Gujarat: 1947-2007'.
