    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


    The following two chapters address the tumultuous struggles of the
    Nagas, covering the period up to 2019. Their saga begins even before the
    British colonised India, and for the purposes of this volume we have
    divided their narrative into two parts. This chapter accounts for the
    period of British rule and early post-independence, almost up to the
    1970s, notably the term of the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal
    Nehru. He had much to do with Nagaland until his demise in 1964.
