Books Info:

Construction of Evil in North East India free pdf Construction of Evil in North East India is an illuminating study on the concept of evil and its representations in literature, political theory and social and cultural movements. It encompasses a wide array of themes in the construction of 'evil' ranging from discourses about the belief in evil to the religious appropriation of 'evil' to its more contemporary politico-aesthetic construction. In order to explore the possible meanings of evil, it brings together essays contributed by scholars and practitioners from various human and social sciences such as philosophy, sociology and ethnography. Set in the tribal cultural mosaic of North East India, the book is an excellent exposition of the myths, narratives and discourses drawn from the tribal experiences of the region. It also examines the possibility of overcoming the forms of evil in correlation with both the 'local' and the 'global' situations of war, terror and redemption. The papers in this collection make a stimulating contribution to the debates centring the idea of evil and its application in public discourses.
