The Book:

ABC OF NAGA CULTURE AND CIVILIZATION is a resource book for academics, students and activists.

This resource book deals with the impact of globalization on Naga Culture and society. The material and cultural traditions of the Nagas are better documented than any other tribal society in the world. And now this rich and vibrant culture is threatened with extinction by forces of globalization.

Although the book takes examples from Naga culture, it provokes the reader into thinking about the way consumerism has changed the way we all eat, we speak, and even think about ourselves and others.

The book makes theory accessible to schoolchildren. It examines the interrelationship between consumerism and cultural politics; intellectual property rights and the preservation of cultural heritage; the relationship between the Market and the State; the problem of consumerism and the rise of religious fundamentalism.

Every chapter is brimming with ideas and insights into possibilities of resistance to globalization at the local level. It shows how UNESCO’s human rights standards can be used as a tool for resisting the incursions of the Market into a society threatened with cultural annihilation.






The Author:

NANDITA HAKSAR is a human rights lawyer. She is an author of several books.
