about this item

Set in the city of Delhi, Migration, Identity and Conflict brings into sharp relief how cultural and racial minorities from India's Northeast managed their lives in a milieu where their identity is under constant interrogation, and their livelihood is in a state of flux. Going beyond the 'racial discrimination' thesis that informs most works on the subject, this book addresses issues of citizenship, ethnicity, gender, religion, role of the state, and the social bonding and disjunctures that take place when people of different cultures live in and share common space. This is an important addition to the growing literature on India's Northeast, exposing both the vulnerability and strength of a people long seen as the social and cultural 'other.' Based on a sociological perspective and policy analysis, this book will be of interest to students of sociology, anthropology, social policy, and lay readers alike.
