The Northeast has evolved as the other in India's nationalist paradigm. This otherness is the result of the region's racial composition and its historical positioning, cultural connectivity, communication and economic linkage. A site of radical identity politics, the Northeast has various communities with striking differences in origin, religion and language that give rise to ethnic conflicts and contestations for power, with each group perceiving the other as a threat to its existence.This work looks at the politics of diversity and identity in the Northeast. The concept of diversity can be used as a unifying mechanism in the post-colonial nation-state through which identities can get homogenized, ethnic identities and cultures can be manipulated for political or economic advantage and ethnic violence can have disastrous consequences like extortion, rape, abduction, death and violation of human rights.Offering a comprehensive analysis that includes theoretical perspectives and a comparison with the political problems in Jammu and Kashmir, this book is a significant study of identity crises in minority communities. Printed Pages: 272.
