Tribalism and Beyond: Bodo (Boro), Garo, Khasi and Mizo Tribes of North East India

 
Rajat Kanti Das (Author)
Synopsis

The book deals with history and cultures, ethnocentric tendencies and changes in the context of contemporary politics of a selected group of North-East Indian tribes, who may be regarded as test cases for setting up a healthy democratic system that may be able to accommodate differential cultural expressions. While describing their history of migration, distinctive socio-cultural features, problems of development and the like, it makes a special efforts to understand the ongoing process of assertion of distinct ethnocultural identities by the respective tribes, which in some cases is given a louder and more affirmative expression. In such cases, as the author contends., the tribals cannot automatically be drawn into the political structure of a higher order it. It is for from a smooth affair and the internal compulsions of the concerned people make it all the more difficult.
