Thomas Hobbes very famously said that the state may not be at war at any given time but it is always in a state of war. Hobbes may or may not be right about this but it does seem as though there has been for quite sometime now a state of war in India's northeast. Peace in India's North East is one of the most serious explorations of the possibilities of peace in this unfortunate region of our country. The contributors consist mostly of young intellectuals from the region who come together in a rare exchange of ideas and points of view. The result is an exciting mix of fresh theoretical insights and historico cultural dialogue. It must be read by everybody who is interested in a fair and authentic articulation of India's nationhood and the place that the northeast must have in it. 480 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 62107
