North-east India has, over the years, become synonymous with secessionism, insurgency, violence and turbulence. The present study is about this crisis and how it led the hill communities to organize and equip themselves, debate and decide their future course of action and confront the colonial and post-colonial Indian states and the process through which this confrontation led to the growth of secessionism. This book details the entire process from the pre-British period to date during which the movement itself underwent several crises and metamorphoses and as a result some struggles crumpled while others still carry on the revolt. Although a number of bestsellers are available on the subject, this is the first serious academic work written by a professional historian.
