This compendium of ten essays earlier published in the quarterly journal Alternative Perspectives is an attempt to evaluate conventional understanding of identity, culture and resistance, and at the same time, present some key underlying arguments in a comprehensive form.This volume consists of three different themes which are closely interrelated. The first theme on identity deals with the assertion of discomfort against the politics of homogenising articulation of identity and the oversimplification of gender issues on the pretext of women being a celebrated identity within our constructed sensibilities. The chapters on economy as the second theme of this volume examine underdevelopment of Manipur’s economy and its ramifications and corelation with the above mentioned issues. The essays of the last theme on resistance underscore the forms of protest which are arguably belittled within the purview of the all pervasive armed conflict and its diverse narratives. Printed Pages: 190.
