In Negotiating Peace, Shimreingam L. Shimray argues that peace cannot be derived from outside forces but that it must instead be created from within the local context by the local people adopting their own cultural and historical system and using their own intellectual and material resources. The author uses a deeply contextual reading of his own setting, resulting in a work whose value rests in revealing how the tribal people of North East India have used their own resources to work for a culture of peace amidst tension and difficulty.

Negotiating Peace grows from an ongoing commitment on the part of Fortress Press to bring creative theological reflection from the Global South to the conversations taking place around the world. It will be of interest not only to scholars of Christianity in North East India but to scholars, students, and those interested in peace studies.

"Shimray makes a critical and incisive analysis of the issues from the ethical and human rights perspectives, and he brings to the fore the significance of just-peace in our broken and ravaged society. He develops his argument elegantly, compactly, and yet broadly. It is compelling, contextually relevant and timely!"
Yangkahao Vashum, Eastern Theological College, Jorhat, Assam, India
