This book discusses the history of unrest and conflict in Northeast India from 1947 to the present day. A perceptive study on public policy and its delivery in the region, the volume highlights that a crisis of governance, security and development has emerged in the Northeast because of the way various government institutions and agencies have been functioning in the area. It uses case studies to illumine conflict dynamics in the two erstwhile princely states of Manipur and Tripura, along with in-depth discussions on Assam and Nagaland. Drawing upon major policy documents, on-the-ground experience and rare insight, the book examines centre-state relations, the armed forces, special acts, human rights and larger policy-level questions confronting the region. It also underlines the key role of the northeastern states in India's `Look East' policy.

Cogent and authentic, this book will be useful to scholars and researchers of security studies, peace and conflict studies, area studies, Indian politics and history, particularly those concerned with Northeast India.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Dr Subramanian's latest book is an incisive analysis of irredentist movements, structural state violence, and Central Government policy in the region. It will be warmly welcomed by all who are concerned with justice, peace and conflict resolution in South Asia. - John Parratt, former Professor of History, University of Birmingham, UK

[A]n insider's account - without the insider hanging heavy on the text. The text is a delicate mix of sensitivity and concern on one hand and objectivity on the other. - Samir Kumar Das, Professor of Political Science and Vice Chancellor of the North Bengal University, Siliguri, West Bengal, India.

The book, therefore, will be an essential reading for understanding the region, its conflict dynamics and also state processes. - Akhil Ranjan Dutta Professor in Political Science Gauhati University, Assam, India
