About The Book
The theme of the present book is "Ethnicity" with reference to the experiences from Manipur. Manipur, as the remaining six states of North-Eastern region of India, is multi-lingual and multi-ethnic. Most of the communities inhabiting Manipur, tribes or others, are in a state of flux as regards their identity.
The objective of this book is to systematize and reorganize the "data" from Manipur by drawing on conceptual perspectives available in anthropology and also other relevant social science disciplines. A review of the available literature on "ethnicity" shows one thing there is a need to formulate a comprehensive analytical framework on ethnicity. In view of all this, the book is an analytical exercise, attempting a comparative analysis of the different empirical situations as obtained in Manipur.
