Tyler Cowan asks

What should I read to better understand the Indian caste system? I thank you all in advance for your assistance.
P.S.I think nobody knows. May be some thing along what Steve Sailor suggests may be good. How historically important groups and persons perceived it, some of the main facets like individual's attitude to community, other world, manual work, purity, the role of religious organizations. And how it works in practice now including economic aspects and any evolving changes. I think Namit Arora's book covers this kind of stuff and is readable.
