India's North East is fast becoming yet another zone of natural and man-made disasters, intercommunity strife, and violent conflicts. This has lead to its accounting for the largest number of people constantly on the move in the country, and hence the analogy in the book title with Blisters on their Feet. This book is a compendium of case studies drawn from Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, and Tripura - the four worst-affected states of the region. This book is the first of its kind, weaving the stories of the people of this region with rare insight, sensitivity, and commitment, and without any theoretical pretensions.

The editor's introduction serves as a useful key to conceptualizing internal displacement as a research problem and a matter of national concern. The book helps us understand the human tragedy of this region in a wider comparative context.
