About the Book :

The magnitude of socio-cultural diversity of North-East India is of enormous significance for the National life of India, even though the region enjoys little space and attention in the National arena. This book of two volumes is an attempt to showcase the diversified topics of North-East India written by academicians and scholars of high repute. It contains as many as forty-seven articles covering almost all the facets of the wide range of historical and socio-cultural aspects of the North-East India. All the writings are potent enough to project the North-East in proper light from the academic point of view. The book will surely pave the way for further research, and other related academic works on North-East’s history, culture and society, strengthening its assimilation process with that of the rest of India.
