This compendium of twelve papers, presented at a national seminar on River Systems in the North Eastern India and their impact upon the Region Environmental Development, held at St. Mary College, Shillong, attempts to study the river systems in the North-East India as a whole and the cases of particular rivers along with their overall impact on the natural landscape, rural and urban morphology and regional development. The contributors deal with the various problems and prospects of the north-eastern rivers as well as progress made by them in the physical, social and cultural aspects of the region. They also make in-depth study of some individual rivers and their tributaries, highlighting their historical, physical, cultural and economic significance.
