This book examines the dynamics of infrastructure development in Northeast India, especially Manipur, from a socio-anthropological perspective.

It looks at the pattern and distribution of infrastructure in the region to analyse the impact of education, roads and health care on the livelihoods, ecosystems, governance and social futures of communities.

The volume examines the infrastructure deficit in the conflict-ridden state of Manipur, focusing especially on electricity and roads.

The author shows how problems arising from poor infrastructure are further complicated on account of corruption, insurgency, ethnic unrest and the politics of marginalisation.

Looking at the discourse around development in the northeast, the volume also highlights the structural inequality in Manipur and other states.

It further shows how infrastructure development can become a means for enabling trade, creating markets, diluting boundaries between varied ethnic groups and connecting people. This book will be useful for researchers and scholars of development studies, economics, social anthropology, sociology and public policy - particularly those interested in India's northeast.
