Mizoram: Historical, Geographical, Social, Economic, Political and Administrative
This book is an enlightened and perceptive study of the geopolitics of northeast, particularly Mizoram, at the micro level. The impact of geography on the recurring ethnic turmoils and intermittent insurgent upheavals in the remote north-eastern rim of the country has been lucidly analysed and elucidated. The book has highlighted such little discussed matters as localisation of tribes, formation of tribal institutions, the alienation of the tribes from the mainstream and the boundary tangles. This book is a valuable addition of the country’s frontier studies at a time when the regional ethos is finding a new mooring among the awakened tribes in the northeast.
