Social Movements in Manipur

N. Joykumar Singh (Author)
Synopsis Social Movements in Manipur is the history of the different types of mass movements which were directed against the colonial British rule. It begins from the year 1917, i.e., the outbreak of the Kuki Rebellion, one of the most significant tribal movements aimed against the imperialist policy of the British which continued till the end of the left movement led by late Hijam Irabot Singh (1951). Besides, the book also discusses other types of movements such as Zeliangrong Movement which was another socio-religious tribal movement. The most important feature of this book is that it makes an attempt to analyse these movements within the conceptual framework of social movements. This is the first book of its kind in Manipur, which analyses the problem within the theoretical concept of social movements. The history of these social movements was not much known to the people and it is very significant that this edition of the book is being brought out at a time when Manipur is witnessing a political and social turmoil and the present people’s movements signifying the assertion of the Manipuri identity and claiming of the area’s political and social rights in modern India, are very intense.
