With contributions from both senior and young anthropologists, North-East India: A Handbook of Anthropology brings together nineteen essays on North-East India. Carefully crafted with the most up-to-date and competent review of literature on North-East India, the book is divided into four sections. The first section of the book deals with the prehistoric archaeology of North-East India and discusses the status of archaeological research in the region. The chapters in the second section reconstruct the colonial context in the light of the then socio-economic and political scenario of the country in general and the region in particular, the evolution of various colonial policies towards the tribes of the region, also giving us a glimpse of Hutton and Mills as ethnographers and administrators. The following section focuses on approaches and models of physical anthropology of North-East India, understanding human growth, dermatoglyphics, dental anthropology and population genetics. The last section probes into the social-cultural anthropology of the region with chapters on tribal social organisation and agrarian relations, among others.Printed Pages: 452.
