The Naga Ethnic Movement for a Separate Homeland

Stories from the Field

Author Dr Namrata Goswami

  • This book is a faithful depiction of the stories of local people, inhabiting the space of armed conflict in Naga inhabited areas of Northeast India.
  • The author captures the context within which these narratives are formed, offering readers a rare, yet much needed glimpse of life in these areas.
  • Such a narrative based approach is unique and critical, as the perspectives of people living in conflict affected areas, are often lost, by the academic need to fit these stories into acceptable models, thereby losing their power to effect change.
  • It includes glimpses into the people's love for their land, the poignant mix of identity, politics, emotions, culture as well as the very real inter-ethnic differences that fuel the conflict.
