The north eastern part of India offers a fascinating study to the researcher. It is a unique area in more senses than one. The ruggedness of the area, the climatic diversities of the hills and the plains, the vastness of rivers and their effect on the economy, the richness of colorful tribal life and the wealth of mineral and other resources are geographer delight. Information on all these aspects lies in different books and treatises that have been written from time to time. The chief merit of the present book, first published in 1837, is that it offers a view off all these aspects in a concise manner. This is no comprehensive anthropological study even though the cultural and demographic trends among the sons of the soil have been outlined to provide a clear perspective of the subject covered. Economic life of any area is obviously related to the special features of is geography. Naturally, therefore, along with information on economic, trade, revenue, and wild life aspects a through study has been made of the geographical features of all major towns and the country side. The section on hill tribes of Assam is quite comprehensive and gives an intimate account of the life of the local people, their customs, arts and religious and social pattern. Printed Pages: 166.
