 DESCRIPTION
spacer

This study of the Kukis of Manipur is the first of its kind. There were various books on the Kukis written by the British officers which were of descriptive nature. The present work is the product of intensive field study, pinpointing certain aspects of the socio-cultural life of the Kukis with conclusions arrived at after exhaustive scientific analyses. He also unfolds other aspects of the life of the Kukis on historical perspective and identity Issue as compared to the Nagas.

Prof. Peter. T. Suzuki of New York University, U.S.A. commented on the work :
This is a profoundly rich study of the Kukis of Manipur. The author modestly has subtitled it a historical analysis. However, the study Itself combines a historical and contemporary analysis and thereby provides the readers with a multidimensional study of a culture worthy of great attention such as offered by Dr. Gangte.

Despite the process of modernization which the Kukis are undergoing, the numerous ceremonies and rites as ably described and analysed by Dr. Gangte attest to the persistence and coherence of their culture. Also, it is satisfying that these rites, etc., are being recorded for posterity by someone who obviously understands and respects the people undergoing the change.

Dr. Gangte also does an excellent job in examining the issue of identity. As compared with the Nagas, the Kukis lack this sense; however, there are a number of extenuating circumstances-all analyzed with insight-which have militated against such a condition. In examining the issue of identity, Dr. Gangte does an admirable job in approaching the Issue from an interdisciplinary position, with reference to language, geography, propinquity, colonial history, and the like.

Dr. Gangte's work is first rate. It is thorough, informative, stimulating, and profound.
