Racism is a deep-seated evil that benefits only some section or dominant group of people in the society, and discriminates the minority and weaker sections without any compassion. The book is meant to familiarize the readers with this evil from different perspectives, such as, biblical; theological and ethical; historical and legal; gender; tribal; ministerial and mass media.

The articles set forth pertinent issues and concerns related to racism that are faced by the people of India in general and North East India in particular. They are aimed at provoking the thoughts of the readers and giving a wakeup call on the evil and threat of racism in the society. This volume intends to appeal everyone to be perceptive and active with a spirit of commonality towards the pain and thorns in many forms that innocent people are made to experience everyday in the most inhuman acts so that they may have more space for peace and justice in the society.

This edited work is a bunch of articles presented by scholars during the National Seminar on the theme, organized by the Clark Theological College, Aolijen, Mokokchung.
