This book is, obviously based on primary source of information. Certain facts were duly corroborated by other sources. It has been objectively analysed, properly interpreted and systematically arranged in a consolidated form. It would be useful as a ready reference to the scholars, interested in undertaking intensive research on individual leaders, and their role in the movement. It would be beneficial to those activists who prefer to take lessons from their past. Therefore, the book is of great value.

Review of Dalit Movement in ndia and Its Leaders -1857-1956 Author -Ramchandra Kshirasagara ;
This is wonderful book in which the author tried to give glimpses of Early Ambedkarite Movement and Ambedkarite Movement . Many Native Non Brahmins who gave their lives were unnoticed as that tome Newspapers and other media sources have neglected details of Non Brahmin Native Movement Even Dr Ambedkar was not given due coverage in media , newspapers so the author must have taken lot of pain in collecting the material from Native people houses and door to door movement .
Native Non Brahmins were always fighting against Brahminism , Videshi Brahmins and Varn and caste system this is what we see from the account of this book .
We find that some of the Non Brahmin leaders from CP and Berar were demanding separate state as Mahavidarbha since 1930 and due to their demand British Government even passed resolution in 1938 unanimously for Vidarbha . Khandare , Raut , Meshram etc were some of the names of Native leaders from Vidarbha who were demanding better approach toward Vidarbha .
It is worth reading book and one should have this book in his collection .
