Social Forces and Politics in North East India

Apurba K. Baruah (Editor) Susmita Sen Gupta (Editor)

This compendium of twelve papers attempts to examine which social forces are instrumental in the articulation of regional identity and what role these forces play in the politics of regionalism in North-East India. Analyzing the role of middle class in the politics of regionalism, it discusses at length the regional politics, ethnicity and youth activism.

Analyzing the impact of Autonomous District Councils on governance, the contributors also deal with the identity formation in the Khasi Hills, the traditional political institutions, the role of Asom Krishak Mukti Sangram Samity, communal mobilization, and peace talks in Assam. A study of two regional political parties—AGP and MNF—finds place in the discussion as well.
