Abstract or Introduction
This monograph elucidates the core features of North East India such as ecology, demography, language, family, marriage, kinship, economic practices, and religion as also complex issues of ethnic conflict, identity politics, immigration problem, insurgency, peace parleys and concerns of development and governance. This monograph aims to update and critically blend empirical facts with official documents. Especially meant to introduce the readers with basic disposition of this frontier region, this monograph also discusses how the region is gradually experiencing the democratization process and economic advancement in the backdrop of rampant ethnic dissent, backwardness, poverty and protracted neglect of the nation-state. It also aims to dispel prevailing prejudices and misunderstandings about northeast and its vibrant cultures.
