The book 'Building the Ambedkar Revolution: Sambhaji Tukaram Gaikwad and Kokan Dalits' is an overdue tribute to Sambhaji Tukaram Gaikwad, Dr. Ambedkar's trusted associate who contributed significantly to the sucess of Mahad Satyagraha and gave logistic support for the bills Dr. Ambedkar brought before the Bombay legislative council. His assistance to Dr. Ambedkar in formulating of starte committee report is noteworthy. This book is a valuable source for researchers in India's social movements of 20th century.
