In this book the author examines the aspiration and politics of the Naga struggle for independence and the cost of the struggle.

‘Indo-Naga Conflict: Problem and Resolution’ is a comprehensive case study of the over five-decade-old Naga movement for self-determination and the prospect of peace in Nagalim (Naga Land). The author examines the aspiration and politics of the Naga struggle for independence and the cost of the struggle. This work also explores the Indian response and the hurdles that have been standing on the way to resolution of the conflict. With the premise and belief that “if there is a problem, there is also solution to it”, the author comes up with formulations of potential alternatives for the resolution of the Indo-Naga conflict.

As the readers would discover, the present work is a holistic study with a difference. This is not just because the author is a Naga, but for its fresh inter-disciplinary approach with the combination of critical academic research, personal experiences and keen ‘futuristic’ insight. This work is most crucial in view of the on-going Indo-Naga peace process and other peace process initiatives in different parts of the world, especially in India. The book, among others, will be most relevant for studies related to ethnicity, identity, tribal transformation, nationalism, human rights, social movements, social change, and conflict transformation/ resolution.
