Description

Regionalism is a complex socio-political phenomenon which seems to have gained importance in recent times. This book seeks to explore and analyse a number of conceptual frameworks for its understanding. While regionalism has manifested itself as a violent demand for secession in certain parts of India, elsewhere it has been expressed in favour of demanding separate political and administrative units within the existing federal framework.

In North East India, regional grievances against the centre coupled with homogeneous cultural processes have strengthened the urge for autonomy and independent living. This, in turn, has found expression through the formation of political parties for the articulation of regional aspirations.

In Meghalaya, for example, a number of regional parties have been formed to ventilate regional grievances. In view of the steady growth of regional parties in Meghalaya, this book seeks to examine the nature of regionalism in Meghalaya as well as the reaction of some of the national parties towards regionalism.

The book also makes an attempt to conceptualize nationalism and examine its compatibility, or lack of it, with regionalism.
