Arunachal Pradesh, the erstwhile North-East Frontier Agency, got the status of a full-fledged state on August 15, 1975. The system of law in the state possesses many significant and interesting features deserving attention and scrutiny not only from an anthropological point of view but also from a legal perspective. There are some twenty major tribes in the state with each having diverse customs and cultures. In this book an endeavour has been made to study the administrative and legal development in the state of Arunachal Pradesh with special reference to the Adi Tribe. The Adis are sensitive by nature and proud of their heritage. They have a rich culture and an age-old set of customary laws. An objective approach towards their lifestyle, custom, culture, religion and belief throws new light on their inner world. This book, Tribal Custom, Law and Justice: A Teleological Study of Adis, embodies as a special characteristic an analytical analysis of the legal aspects of the lesser known Adi Tribe of the state of Arunachal Pradesh.
