The diversity of India caught in maps for the first time ever, based on the latest Census figures. 84 maps and 28 tables on: the People of India; India at Work (in Agriculture, Crafts, Manufacturing and Services); Literacy and Education; Marriage, Life and Death, etc. This atlas especially tells about the condition and position of women and girls: their material conditions of existence and their social and economic standing relative to men. Supplemented by detailed appendices, texts and tables the Atlas makes 'invisible' facts accessible for a wide range of readers.
