Tribes of North-East India: Biological and Cultural Perspectives

Sarthak Sengupta (Editor)
Synopsis North-east India, comprising of seven sister states of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura, is the homeland of a bewildering variety of tribal life. Their ethnicity, culture and folklore form a rich mosaic of India’s primitive life. This volume, contributed by eminent anthropologists, sociologists, political scientists and administrators combines authentic research, field study and the futuristic scene of regional tribal life. The discussion covers the large spectrum of ethnological, philosophical, linguistic, mythological and historical aspects of the different groups. The tensions and conflicts in their lives have been duly recorded and analysed, not excluding controversial issues such as conversion to Christianity and the interplay of fusion and fission. In all, the volume is an important contribution to the biological and cultural study of well-known and lesser known tribes.
