This resource book deals with the impact of globalization on Naga culture and society. The material and cultural traditions of the Nagas are better documented than any other tribal society in the world. And now this rich and vibrant culture is threatened with extinction. Although the book takes examples from Naga culture it provokes the reader into thinking about the way consumerism has changed the way we all eat, we speak, and even think about ourselves and others.

Although the book takes examples from Naga culture it provokes the reader into thinking about the way consumerism has changed the way we all eat, we speak, and even think about ourselves and others.

The book makes theory accessible to schoolchildren. It examines the inter-relationship between consumerism and cultural politics; intellectual property rights and the preservation of cultural heritage; the relationship between the Market and the State; the problem of consumerism and the rise of religious fundamentalism.

Every chapter is brimming with ideas and insights into possibilities of resistance to globalization at the local level. It shows how UNESCO s human rights standards can be used as a tool for resisting the incursions of the Market into a society threatened with cultural annihilation.

Thus it is a resource book for both academics and activists.



Author Bio: The authors are human rights activists and at present involved in the Indo-Naga peace process.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Thursday 02 June, 2011.
