About the Book :

"Women and Politics in Nagaland delves into the core of contemporary Naga society to understand the nature of political participation of women against the larger picture of their often ambivalent standing in the patriarchal social set-up. Toshimenla Jamir questions the patriarchal ideology that affects them as citizens of the State. Despite the contextual setting of the book, the subject matter is relevant to many tribal societies around the country where traditionally women are excluded from all forms of political activity rendering them politically incapable. Considering the United nations Millennium Development Goals of achieving gender equality for all, this book is a pioneering effort in understanding the dynamics of gender relations in the tribal society vis-a-vis political participation of women thereby throwing light on the little known and much misconstrued nature of its social dynamics. The book would be of immense importance to academics, scholars and researchers as well as general readers interested in understanding more about the region which currently faces a paucity of well-researched and documented literature."
