The book is a collection of essays written exclusively by North-East Tribal Scholars related to various socio-economic, political, ethno-history, religion, culture, environment and linguistic issues and problems. It focuses on issues involved in understanding the complex concepts of culture, customs, worldviews and the contemporary aspects from insiders’ view points, which may be contradictory to earlier hypothetical writings by outsiders. The description also contains some invaluable data, insights and new information very useful for policy makers and academicians for further research.
