The Mizo Leadership

P.K. Bandyopadhyay (Author)
Synopsis An absorbing account of the Mizos the present book seeks to unfold the leadership and authority structure of those people in India’s northeast. Various influences and pressures both from with and without have shaped the Mizo socio-economic and cultural spectrum. The Mizos have now lived down their turbulent past and gradually matured by the vicissitudes of history. They are veritable part of the Indian mainstream. It is a fascinating saga from 1898, the year of the creation of the Lushai Hills District to the present day – a search for a pan-Mizo identity with all its stresses and strains. The writer studied the evolving society in various phase. First he carried out an intensive field study during 1979-83. He reviewed the position in 1987 after the Mizoram Accord and assessed the situation in 2003 in an effort to unravel the proverbial Mizo riddle – the undying mystery of the land of the Blue Mountain and the mystique of the folk figures like Chhura, Lalruanga and Liandova.
