About the Book

Arunachal Pradesh, often referred to as the ‘land of the dawn-lit mountains’, is the largest state (83,743 sq km) in Northeast India. In the past few decades Arunachal Pradesh has witnessed many shifts in the social, political and economic realm from significant changes in agricultural production to consistent efforts to usher in development and industrialization and strengthen market mechanisms. There has been a quantum jump in the number of educational institutions such as schools, along with increased access to university education. Today, the state apparatus with its multiple organizations, agencies and processes, is a major player in Arunachal Pradesh. Many representative institutions and processes have taken strong root in the state. This is not to suggest that traditional modes of interactions, relations and institutions have completed disappeared. On the contrary, the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ have been negotiating with, contesting against, and altering each other. This volume, with contributions from senior policy-makers, established academicians, leading members of civil society and research scholars, makes a modest effort to understand such multiple negotiations. The papers in this volume reflect on a wide range of issues such as external policy, mapping the contours of modernization, transition in institutions, development strategies, employment challenges and educational policies. For people interested in understanding Arunachal Pradesh, this volume would be a valuable resource.     br>
