The Quest for Identity: The Tribal Solidarity Movement in North-East India, 1947-69

Amalendu Kishore Chakraborty (Author)
Synopsis This work is an in-depth study of how the preliterate hill people of north-eastern India reinvented their ethnic nationalistic identities under British colonial rule and Christian evangelical education. The author witnessed the separate Hill State movements from close quarters. He was a professor of history at Tura Government College, Meghalaya and a correspondent of the Assam Tribune, Guwahati and the now defunct Amrita Bazar Patrika of Calcutta. His connection with these newspapers gave him an opportunity to be friend of many prominent hill leaders and gain an insight of their movements. This book is an explanation of his understanding of Hill State movements which ended in the establishment of Meghalaya in 1971.
