Population trends in The Brahmaputra Valley 1881-1931: A Study in Historical Demography

Homeswar Goswami (Author)
Synopsis This book on regional historical demography is the first major study analyzing the factors responsible for the growth and variations in the population of Assam during 1881-1931. The book fills up, for the first time, the gaps in the population statistics of Assam, particularly in the field of fertitity, mortality and migration rates. The internal migration factor has been decomposed into main historical streams and then studied and analysed in depth. The work is methodologically oriented and offers estimates of the population parameters with the aid of appropriate growth curves and other statistical tools and techniques. The links of population events with the socio-cultural mitieu of Assam in an historical perspective have been adequately probed by the author. Besides being a useful reference work for the postgraduate students majoring on populatin and demography, the book would provide much new information for demographers, population experts, planners, policy makers and economic historians who are interested in pursuing a scientific study of the behaviourial dynamics of population in the Brahmaputra Valley, also called the Assam Valley. The variations in population have been studied and analysed componentwise. While it does not purport to be a comprehensive text on the economics of population, important questions of demography are discussed in the context of the book’s main aims. The book should also be useful as prolegomena for a scientific and dispassionate understanding of the current movement for the deportation of the illegal infiltrators coming into the north eastern region form neighbouring countries.
