About the Book :

This compendium of 28 papers attempt to examine the population dynamics and development pattern in North-East India. Taking a close look at the population of agricultural workers and their work participation, it discusses at length the population growth and changes in demographic structure in the region, forest degradation, and the qualitative as well as quantitative dimensions of population dynamics. The contributors also deliberate on the quality of women life, polemics of migration, socio economic implications of population growth, urbanization and growth of slums, the trend of multi-culturalism, religious minorities and communal harmony.
