Ceasefire City

Militarism, Capitalism, and Urbanism in Dimapur

Dolly Kikon and Duncan McDuie-Ra

  • One of the first books to discuss Nagaland's urban spaces
  • Captures gender issues in Dimapur and the North east
  • Ceasefire City aims to capture the dynamics of Dimapur by bringing together the fragmented sensibilities granted and contested in particular spaces in the city and the embodied experiences of the city by its residents. The first part of the book talks about military presence, capitalist growth, and urban expansion in Dimapur through an analysis of its spatial politics, and the second part, through collaborative ethnographic exercises, focuses on the relationship between the lived realities and the meanings that are forged around the city.
