This is an ethnographic account of a particular tribe, the Thangal, but with a little difference from the earlier ones because of the fact that this book contains the factual accounts given by an author, who himself is a Thangal. The author strives to expose in the best possible way the most realistic picture of the people both in the traditional as well as modern settings. The necessity of such a work has been long felt primarily due to the fact that no full-length ethnographic study on this tribe has been attempted earlier.
The book has eleven chapters dealing with various aspects including the geographical aspects, the people, demography, the Thangal as a Naga, its society, village administration, economy, folk tradition and so on.
This book will be of great help for those who want to have peep into the life, culture and way of life of the people who live in the remote north-eastern part of India.
