The story of human migration is as old as the story of Homo sapiens. The search for more living space has sometimes spawned unrest and conflict. Most prominent in this regard has been the migration from China and Bangladesh that has gained momentum over the past several decades. Operation Lebensraum: Illegal migration from Bangladesh discusses the entire gamut of migration from Bangladesh into India with a focus on Assam. The book highlights the government's failures to comprehend the nature of the problem, and the ways and means to tackle a phenomenon that has already assumed an uncontrollable proportion and fuelled large scale disturbances. The book also draws comparisons with similar patterns and events from around the world, especially on the US government policies for tackling illegal migration from Mexico.
