Asok Kumar Ray (Editor) Rajendra Prasad Athparia (Editor)
Synopsis This book gives an illustrative account of the space of women in the changing power structure in northeast India. The Present volume contains 23 research papers based on rigorous empirical studies made by the regional scholars and covers the state scenarios of Meghalaya, Assam and Tripura. The thematic focus of the book is laid on the role and status of tribal women in course of changing economic, social and political institutions in this region. Each paper bears on a particular aspect of the central theme and raises issues arising from such changes in this region. The major women issues raised in this book are their missing space in the decision-making platform, the emerging threats and opportunities in the traditional and the emerging socio-political and economic Institutions and structures of power. Many of the issues need critical understanding in the course of change form tradition to modern and beyond. Given the relevance and adequacy of the thematic focus and also given the sharpness of the issues facing the tribal and the disadvantage women in the northeast, this book not only stimulates high academic interest but also gives useful feedback for formulation of adequate social policy for the women of this region.
