Description

'Rites of Passage provides an understanding of a region and a people about which little is known. Hazarika has done a commendable job in throwing light on many of the issues involved.' -Deccan Herald, Bangalore 'Like all other Hazarika's books, this too is highly readable because of his style of writing. He takes the reader through huge mass of facts and their interpretation from a particular perspective with an ease that is remarkable.' -The Hindustan Times, New Delhi 'Hazarika knows what he is talking about and this study is full of facts and figures of large-scale and often surreptitious migrations, demographic changes and resultant tensions.' -Free Press Journal, Mumbai Many of his suggestions are well thought uot and are indeed doable. Use of personal narratives of ordinary migrants make the book far more readable and credible than most treatises on migration in India's Northeast. --Biblio
