ABOUT THE BOOK

The book is a collection of articles written on elections and the performance of political parties in various states of Northeast India. It also an attempt to highlight the trajectory politics of the Northeastern states from ethno-regionalism to Hindu nationalism. Most of the states in Northeast India is largely dominated by Christianity and homeland for multiple ethnic communities.  Inspite the existence of ethno-regional political parties and organisations and everyday ethnic assertions and self-determination, the national political parties played a vital role in the electoral politics of these states. Though the Congress party which scripted history in the politics of these states for decades since the formation of many Northeastern states, in the aftermath 2014 general election, the Hindu nationalist politics assumed a centre stage reducing the space of the Congress. These articles capture the intricacies of emerging politics in the northeastern states which would be a guiding light for the researchers and common readers on India's Northeast.
