Synopsis: India's eastern-most state of Arunachal Pradesh, moulded out of the mountainous regions of Assam, is incomparable to any other place in the world due to its ethnic diversity and beautiful and varied natural landscapes.
Unexplored rainforests, home to over a hundred different indigenous tribes, farmers whose culture and way of life are largely influenced by Buddhism, both from Tibet and Burma. Ancient traditions including polygamy, the family and its place within tribal culture, honor, conflict and animal sacrifice, head hunting have all survived here.
As the first book to explore this area Arunachal: Peoples, Arts and Adornment in India's Eastern Himalayas is the result of 10 years of travel and meticulous recording of the people, geography, history, society and culture; beautifully illuminated by wonderful photography, it tells the incredible story of an ancient and magical part of India that until now, has remained largely hidden from the world outside.
