In this interesting publication, Chittooparampil sheds new light on the caste culture of India and the whole of south Asia. He does so from an involvement in social, religious, and theological services that stretches over many years. Important features of his work appear to be the fact that he offers a new interpretation of caste, that his approach is firmly rooted in the tradition of Contextual Theology, and that he almost exclusively, draws on the insights and inspiration of Indian sociologists, historians, and theologians over the past fifty years.
