Title: History of Naga Anthropology (1832-1947), A Review
Date of publication: 2007
Description/subject: A Review of Abraham Lotha’s History of Naga Anthropology (1832-1947)..... History of Naga Anthropology (1832-1947) is a short monograph on writings about Nagas by British colonial administrators and ethnographers from 1832, the year Nagas first came in contact with the British, to 1947, the year the Raj dissolved and the British officially left the Naga Hills. The book is based on research Abraham Lotha did for the master’s degree in Cultural Anthropology at Columbia University in New York. He is currently working on his PhD dissertation at CUNY’s Graduate Center.Although knowledge about the Nagas is reserved mostly for area specialists, History of Naga Anthropology is a valuable contribution to the broad field of postcolonial studies, a progressive cluster of multidisciplinary scholarship that took the Anglophone academic world by storm in the last quarter of the twentieth century. Colonial and postcolonial studies had a huge impact especially in the humanities and social sciences including Cultural Anthropology. Postcolonial Studies’ chief achievement was the unraveling of colonialism’s ideology and its Euro-centered worldview that gave birth to such romantic notions as the “manifest destiny” and the “white man’s burden” of bringing western civilization and Christianity to the rest of the supposedly benighted and heathen world. The belief in the civilizing mission — more accurately the propaganda of it — geared European colonialism for over five hundred years, starting in 1492, ushering in an era of material exploitation and political domination by competing European powers of the colonized societies in the Americas, Asia, Africa, and Australia.

Title: Naga Struggle Against Tyranny
Date of publication: June 2004
Description/subject: "The Naga, sandwiched between Burma and India, have had a tough lot. If geo-politics and geo-strategy can be labeled academically as “frontiers”, then the military and political histories and realities of South Asia’s oldest insurgency—by the fiercely independent Naga of India and Burma—definitely have a long way to go. The Naga ethnic minority of almost four million people inhabit a 48,000 square mile contiguous frontier area of Burma, China and India..."
