Confronting the State: ULFA's Quest for Sovereignty

Nani Gopal Mahanta (Author) Sage Studies on India's North East

This book attempts to examine the complex nuances and dynamics that make United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) a formidable insurgent group in India. Arguing that to understand the phenomenon of insurgency, one has to understand the genesis of conflict between the Indian State and the state of Assam, it claims that the ideological and identity issues between India and Assam have remained unresolved, and ULFA is a manifestation of that unresolved crisis.

Explaining that ULFA represents a mindset, a suppressed voice, which is deeply engrained in Assam’s psyche, the book tries to go beyond a ULFA-centric solution and dwells upon the issues of illegal migration, human development and the need for the protection of a composite society in Assam. It also deals with the 2012 violent conflict in Bodoland over the issue of illegal migration and quest for a homogenous homeland.
