Immigration and Identity Transformation in Assam

For centuries migrants have been accommodated in Assamese society. This article briefly reviews the shaping of Assamese society and culture over centuries and goes on to discuss pre- and post-independence changes in politics, attitudes and the demography of the state. It examines the language issue, the tribals versus Assamese middle class tensions and the position of Muslims in the state. The Assamese identity will likely be shaped by the criss-crossing ethnic, linguistic and religious divisions in Assamese society.
