The process of land acquisition in ancestral Naga territory was set off through Colonial Acts and Regulations. Post Indian Independence, development-induced systematic process of land alienation accelerated whereby, any 'development' for the people is in reality at the cost of their traditional rights. This book explores the historical socio-political factors and contemporary cultural changes wrought by both external forces and internal dynamics in Nagaland.
