Tribes of Arunachal Pradesh: History and Culture

Palash Chandra Coomar (Editor) Bibhas Dhar (Editor)
Synopsis Arunachal Pradesh, the northern-most state of the Northeast region of India is the homeland of a number of tribes and sub-tribes. The state is a canvas of colourful communities with their habitats amid the lofty sierra, dense forests and roaring rivers with variegated socio-cultural milieu with a congregation of diversified socio-religious beliefs and practices. Such societies are of immense anthropological interest. But, till date hardly any volume is available in the market which exclusively covers the different aspects and heritage of the various tribal communities of the state. This is a book where views and research papers of a number of anthropologists working on the tribal groups in the different parts of Arunachal Pradesh, are systematically arranged for the benefit of the administrators, social scientists and the students of anthropology to understand the ingenious thinking of the indigenous people.
