This book aims to provide a comprehensive understanding about the post-colonial research trends on the Idu Mishmi community of Arunachal Pradesh, which was considered as an important tribe since the pre-colonial and colonial days. It takes into account the historicity of the tribe and brings into light the change and continuity in the context of emerging realities of a bordering state. It takes stock of some ground realities pertaining to issues of daily life to sociocultural aspects to the issues of resource mobilization. In exploring these issues and concerns confronting the Idu Mishmis, the challenge has been taken up by the current generation scholars having different academic backgrounds cutting across the disciplinary boundaries.
This book is likely to cater the needs of students, researchers, academicians, administrators and policymakers alike, in understanding the potentials and the contemporary issues faced by the smaller tribes in general and the Idu Mishmis in particular. It may be noteworthy to mention that Idu Mishmis who are at the centre of discussion in this book have inhabited the eastern-most part of India for centuries but very little has been known and written about them.
