The present volume is a comprehensive illustrated survey of land and people of tribal dominated Arunachal Pradesh which attained statehood in 1987. The relationship of the land and people of Arunachal Pradesh with the Indian civilization has a very long past. This is evident from various myths and legends, Buranjis-the Ahom Chronicle, and from archaeological sites. The records of Hiuen Tsang mention the hill people of this region he had encountered during his travel to India in the early part of the seventh century. Muhammad Kasim in the days of Aurangzeb has also mentioned the Daflas (the present Nyishis) of this region. The Monpa and Khampti communities have been professing Buddhism and thereby have contact with the Buddhist centres in the country. Neo-Vaishnavism of Assam, as propounded by Sankardev, had inroad to Nocte community before the British came to the region. The existence of the pilgrim centre Parashuram Kund dates back to the time of composition of Kalika Puran and Yogini Tantra, i.e., 8th century AD. Archaeological sites at Malinithan, Bismakanagar, Naksaparvat and other places trace the connection at least to the 13th-14th century. Needless to say, the tribal communities were not living in absolute isolation, but with some degree of interaction or contact with the Indian civilization. This volume makes an illustrative presentation of the land and people along with their traditions and the transition noticed in various communities of Arunachal Pradesh for the common readers. In the process of presentation, the commonalities and differences in the lifestyle of similar and different ethnic groups have been highlighted. Printed Pages: 192.
