History & Politics

Scrolls of Strife traces the tumultuous history of the Nagas. Seen by many Indians as a belligerent people who authored the most intractable version of insurgency in Eastern India, the Nagas' relationship with the rest of the country has often been a turbulent one. The book also probes into the distinctive culture of the Nagas, their diverse customs, languages, and their history of tribal warfare, even amongst themselves. Their relationship with their Assamese neighbors, the lasting impact of the British colonialists and American missionaries, and the tragic misunderstand between Nagaland and leaders at the Center, all combine to make for an intriguing historical read.
