Summary

This book examines the question of class formation and social inequality within tribal groups in North-East India.

Focusing on the Nagas it analyses and challenges common perceptions about them as a class-less society with a uniform culture. It looks at the previously neglected themes of class formation and structure, division of work, emerging social milieus and cultural differentiation among the Naga youth— and presents fresh arguments about notions of modernity.

Providing a theoretical understanding of inequality, this volume will be useful for scholars and researchers of Northeast India, tribal studies, exclusion studies, sociology, social anthropology, political studies, development studies, cultural studies and South Asian studies.
