This document is a general survey of the history and conditions of the Naga peoples who live in Nagaland on the borders of India and Burma. It is a collection of material from a variety of sources which an IWGIA editorial board has put together under guidance from several Nagas. Although the book reflects no particular position within the Naga struggle, it draws different types of documentation into a broad-spectrum account of what has been happening in Nagaland. IWGIA has received the information in this document from a range of sources, and it has been structured to reflect these differences. Part I provides a background to the history and ethnography of the region, Part II comes from a series of tapes which has been transcribed into one personal account of life in Nagaland, and Part III presents a wide variety of documentation on specific issues which have arisen in Nagaland from the 1950s till the 1980s. The first section on human rights traces the record of violations from the 1950s to the mid 1980s by a series of reports and contemporary documentation. The second and third sections are mainly reference documents on agreements and special laws which are referred to in other parts of the book.
