Part of the `Transition in Northeastern India' series, this volume critically explores how Northeast India, especially Manipuri society, responded to colonial rule. It studies the interplay between colonialism and resistance to provide an alternative understanding of colonialism on the one hand, and society and state formation on the other. Challenging dominant histories of the area, the essays provide significant insights into understanding colonialism and its multiple effects on economy, polity, culture, and faith system. It examines hitherto untouched areas in the study of Northeast, and discusses how social movements are augmented, constituted or sustained.

This book will be of great interest to researchers and scholars of modern history, sociology and social anthropology, particularly those concerned with Northeast India.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Macro studies of colonialism fail to bring out the regional specificities and nuanced variation of colonial practice and impact in different parts of the world. It requires engagement at the grassroots. The present book does just that. The collection leaves hardly any sphere untouched: polity, economy, society, religion and literature. - Sajal Nag, Assam University, Silchar

[A]n important addition to serious scholarship dealing with the complexities of colonial intervention and the lines of indigenous resistance in India's Northeast . . . the essays attempt to address . . . the relevance of internal colonialism and the different forms of resistance. - Udayon Misra, National Fellow, Indian Institute of Advanced Study (IIAS), Shimla
