Abstract

This 5 volumes encyclopaedic study of India's North-East is the result of the Author's 11 years of service in the region. It studies the diversity of the North-East (ethnics, racial, religious, linguistic, size, historic and geography). If India is microcosmic world, the North-East is microcosmic India. 213 communities are indigenous to the North-East, among which 111 languages are found in Arunachal Pradesh alone. It is the home to 325 spoken languages. Assam State, with a population of 39 millions constitutes 2,69 % of India's surface while its area is 255 088 sq. km (7,75 % of the 3.287.263 sq. km of India).
