This is a classic book not only on history but also on geography, sociology and anthropology as well. The book was written by William Robinson nearly 170 years back – a time when Assam had hardly passed 15 years under the rule of the English East India Company’s Government in Bengal. Assam was passing through a period of transition in all respects: social, political, economical and administrative under the new political dispensation. The book is a good repository of data and information on Assam in making then. The editor does not add anything to the original text of the author, and has simply supplied additional information in the end notes against each chapter so that it makes for a good read.

Assam & the 19th Century

Get Latest Price

This book was originally the PhD thesis of Dr. Nanda Talukdar who died in 1983 in a tragic road accident without facing the interview. The court of the Gauhati University took an unprecedented decision to award the PhD degree to Dr. Nanda Talukdar posthumously without the mandatory interview (viva) as a rare case, considering the importance and merit of the thesis. This
thesis has been slightly rearranged, resulting in this book titled Assam & the 19th century. Dr. Talukdar’s focus was Ananda Ram Dhekial Phukan, but he managed to dig out enough material of that forgotten era as a result, the dimension of the research had become wider.

History of the Frontier Areas Bordering on Assam
Interested in this product?
Get Best Quote
Robert Reid’s A History of Frontier Areas Bordering on Assam is a fascinating piece of colonial writing. It is a window into the colonial mind with its notions of people and space that comprise Northeast India. Reid’s account amply demonstrates that for the colonial system a frontier was a set of sociospatial relations and not mere drawing and administration of international boundaries. The framework to understand these relations was founded on some anthropological and colonialist presumptions. Researchers can dispute these presumptions today. But the striking significance of the book in this regard lies in its candid admission of policies and actions, as well in the thought behind them vis-à-vis the practices on (colonial) frontier. On such frankness in discussing official policies on Northeast India, the post independence Indian state is possibly yet to equal. At the same time, Reid also shows that colonialism was not a monolith. There were debates and ambiguities within colonialism vis-a-vis the making and governance of the Northeast frontier. Reid’s work is a wealth of insight into these debates. These debates have significant contemporary relevance. They highlight the relation between thought and policy making with regard to frontier processes and provide a context to study social and political transition from colonial to post-colonial Northeast India. The book will be useful to researchers, administrators and policy makers interested in socio-political development of Northeast India and frontier studies in general.

The Fearless Democrat: Hem Barua–carries all those skills, linguistic excellence, intelligence, fearlessness, etc. and this is the first book on Hem Barua’s parliamentary activities. We hope that, the meek effort of publishing this book will get enormous response from the wide range of readers.
About the Author:
Hem Barua was the only parliamentarian from Assam, who used to mesmerise everyone through his speeches by choice of words, linguistic excellence, loaded information about the subjects, intelligence, sarcasm, wit, calmness and knowledge in the Indian Parliament for years. This at a time when Indian Parliament had stalwarts like Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia, S.A. Dange, Acharya J.B. Kripalini, H.V. Kamath, Shri Nath Rai, Madhu Limaye, Morarji Desai, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Indira Gandhi, Krishna Menon and many more. Hem Barua spent most of his times in the opposition benches in the Parliament. For decades, there are lots of discussion about Hem Barua’s oratorical skills, but there was no book on those skills, his speeches, his questions and debates in the parliament.
About the Compiler and Editor: 
Kumar Deepak Das is a Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha), noted for his progressive outlook and oratorical skills. He was an active student leader of the historic ‘Assam Movement’ and presently is an important member of the regional political party ‘Asom Gana Parishad’.

Abortions in the Land of Ahimsa

Get Best Quote
Abortions in the Land of Ahimsa is one of the most avidly researched books dealing with concerns raised about the rampant practice of abortion in contemporary India. Though uniquely bound to ahimsa by its culture and Constitution, India is a country that is witness to the killing of hundreds of thousands of innocent children in the mothers’ womb. The book analyses the socio-cultural, legal, economic and religious issues associated with ‘legalised killing’ in the context of a Constitutional commitment to ahimsa and calls for re-thinking public policy. The call for the re-evaluation of policies is all the more pertinent as it is backed by one of the largest surveys done in the country among women who have experienced abortions. It is a must read for policy makers, politicians, social workers, persons in healthcare, and above all, for every woman, and everyone committed to non-violence.

The Final Hour

The Final Hour is a collection of Assamese short stories translated into English. Set in the backdrop of the plains of Assam where the mighty Brahmaputra flows, the river is witness to the love, joy, success and of the Assamese people. It is also witness to the religious frenzy, superstitions, betrayals, hate and violence that mark the dark hours of the night. Love and loyalty are hidden in the most unexpected quarters. Young Arjun fondly sings a lullaby to put a child to sleep… hatipoti, makipur, mezenga, bahut dur…! And in the end, deeply hurt to the core, he realizes that in this wide world, no one was truly your very own. Through the years, the Assamese have been known for their hospitality and kindness. Sayeed Ali, a Muslim boy, trapped in the middle of a communal riot, remembers the kindness of an aging Hindu couple. “Like a hen hiding her chicks from the claws of the kite, they protected me under the fold of their wings…” he says. And the stories go on until Abhijit’s final hour and beyond. These stories embrace a deep understanding of human behaviour as depicted by the authors.

Sanjeev Kumar Nath pays tribute to the pioneer Assamese story-tellers Lakshminath Bezbaroa and his granddaughter Troilokyeswari Devi Baruani through his work The World of Assamese Folktales. While the former tried to establish the distinctiveness of Assamese language and culture through story-telling, the latter represented the living tradition of Assamese storytelling and enchanted her many young followers with her tales. This book is a result of the author’s fascination with Assamese folktales and he brings to fore two issues – how women are represented in the world of Assamese folktales, and how the tales sometimes seem to question the givens of caste and class hierarchy in society. Each story has a message in itself. Bezbaroa’s
tales, in fact, succeed in holding up a complete picture of Assamese rural life and culture.

Xadhukatha

Xadhukatha’ is the Assamese term for ‘folktales.’ The tales in this book belong to the oral tradition like all folktales. These stories are simple and have elements like fantasy, magic and the supernatural. The characters include gods and goddesses and animals as well as human beings. Most of the stories have a moral although some, like the story Teton, are just simply pure fun. Set in antiquity, the stories have characters from different social classes and types. Kings, beggars, nobles and peasants, the saintly and the sinful, tricksters and bumpkins, the lazy and the industrious, the intelligent and the stupid are all to be found in these tales. An interesting aspect of Xadhukatha is the large number of stories having women as the chief protagonists. Some stories remind us of other folktales from around the world. The Monkey Bride reminds one of Beauty and the Beast. Troilokyeswari Devi Baruani has also taken from the Panchatantra (Bandor) and Vikramaditya tales (The iddle) but presented them in her own style.

Assam occupies an important position on the global biodiversity map. Nestled in the Indo-Burma and Himalayan biodiversity hot spots, the state has more than 800 species or nearly three-fourth of all the bird diversity in India. Assam also has the second highest number of mammals and is known for its high reptilian diversity. Besides, the state has a wide variety of habitats ranging from tropical wet evergreen rain forest and wet savanna grassland of the Brahmaputra Valley to the subtropical forests of the Barails. The state is also home to a globally distinctive population of wild elephant, tiger, great Indian one-horned rhinoceros, wild water buffalo, swamp dear, pigmy hog, golden langur, hoolock gibbon as well as white-winged wood duck, Bengal florican and black-breasted parrotbill. Over the years, mainly due to the increase in human population, the wildlife habitat has shrunk and also got fragmented. The book is an attempt to throw light objectively on all the challenges facing nature and wildlife. The book will cater to the needs of a broad section of readers, including tourists who could have a better appreciation of Assam’s rich wildlife.
