This Book, ‘A Compact Text Book of Western Political Thought’ is a comprehensive syllabus based text book for BA 1st Year, 2nd SEMESTER in Political Science as prescribed by Manipur University. Since syllabus based text books are rarely available in the market, students have to go for quite a good number of books to have a full set of Syllabus which is not only a costly a‑ air, but also scarcely available in a remote place like Churachandpur (Lamka). This has given much uncalled for burden and headache to students, particularly financially constraints students.
This Book, I sincerely believe, would immensely help those sincere and ambitious students to be in a better preparedness for their Second Semester Examination. Omission and Commission, including typing error etc., if any, would be rectified in the subsequent publication.
This lucidly written published work on the Paites of ethnic Zo group inhabiting northern Chin State of Myanmar, Southern Part of Manipur and North-Eastern corner of Mizoram, is a research based publication on the changing socio-economic and political life of the people. Attempt had been made to study the ever changing lifestyle of the people due to their conversion into Christianity form their traditional animistic belief in ancestor worship, their changing economic life with the merger of Manipur and Mizoram (Lushai Hills) with independent India etc. Sincere efforts had been made to study the political life of the people from the era of traditional chieftainship to the changed position of the chief due to the introduction of democratic political system in independent India and due to the introduction of Modern education by the Western Christian Missionaries.
