The book analyses the causes and seeks to comprehend the political meaning and significance of the persisting ethnic militancy in Northeast India. The author maintains that prolonged counter insurgency operations in the area have eroded the democratic fabric of the region where the army has institutionalized its authoritarian practices. The formal and informal structures of governance of this parallel regime, the intellectual ideas that shape it, and the resultant erosion of the democratic fabric of the region are the major themes of this work.
