Description

About the Book:

For decades states in India's Northeast have experienced ethnic conflict and suffered human and material losses due to insurgency and counter-insurgency operations. This book analyses the causes and seeks to comprehend the political meaning and significance of persisting political violence.

The author argues that prolonged counter-insurgency operations have eroded the democratic fabric of the region and institutionalized authoritarian practices. There is a growing dissonance between the idea of ethnic homelands and the actually existing political economy of the region that makes ethnic violence and internal displacements quite predictable.

The book explores the economic incorporation of the region into the global capitalist economy in the 19th century and the resultant conflict between global and local resource use regimes. It delves into the historical roots of the region's oldest armed conflict-the Naga insurgency, and carries a detailed analysis of the United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) during different phases of its power and influence.

The author argues for a reorientation of India's policy towards the Northeast and for linking it to a new foreign policy towards Southeast Asia. India should take advantage of the cultural and spatial proximity of the Northeastern states to the ASEAN region. The economic integration of the region with Southeast Asia through the pursuit of a dynamic 'Look East' policy could go a long way in bringing about stability, peace, and prosperity.

Opening new perspectives in our understanding of ethnic conflict and the meaning of democracy with specific reference to the Northeast, this book will be of interest to students, researchers and scholars in politics and history, journalists, policy-makers, defence analysts, and the informed lay reader.

Excerpts from Review:

'Durable Disorder opens new perspectives in our understanding of federalism, the linkage between domestic and foreign policies, ethnic conflict and the meaning of democracy.'

- Susanne Hoeber Rudolph, President,
American Political Science Association

'Sanjib Baruah's new book raises the discussion about the Northeast to an altogether higher plane, it brings current debates in political thought to bear upon our understanding of the region in a way that has not been done before.'

- Mrinal Miri, Vice-Chancellor,
North Eastern Hill University, Shillong

'Sanjib Baruah's Durable Disorder explains politics in India's Northeast with brilliant clarity, using history, theory, journalism, personal experience, and participant insight to the full.'

- David Ludden, Professor of History,
University of Pennsylvania
