About the Book

Since independence internal dissent has increasingly manifested in violence, conflict and terrorism. Conflicts in the North East and the proxy war in Jammu & Kashmir on our frontiers pose a serious challenge to India's security. The core of the problems rests on domestic roots with external influence and spread of arms and drugs aggravating the situation. Deteriorating political ethos, fermenting religious and ethnic divide and lack of responsive and effective governance has further worsened the situation.

The North East and Jammu and Kashmir with their distinctive features need to be addressed separately. The study examines the historical perspective, geopolitical dynamics and contemporary experience of the people in the socio-political, cultural and economic spheres in these areas. The search for a solution goes beyond the physical boundaries of the conflict for it to be lasting and holistic. The author suggests a way forward. The book may be of interest to all, interested in the subject as well as the regions.
