Amalendu Guha (Author)
Synopsis This is a re-issue of Amalendu Guha’s influential work on Assam and the North-east, thirty years after its original publication, with a new Introduction by the author. Guha’s analysis extends from Assam in 1826, the year of the British annexation, to the post-independence conditions in 1950. the peculiar features of the region’s plantation economy; the imperialism of opium cultivation; the problems of a steady influx of immigrants and the backlash of a local linguistic chauvinism; peasants’ and workers’ struggles; the evolution f the ryot sabhas, the Congress, trade unions and, later, the communist Party-such as the themes that have received attention in this book, alongside an analysis of legislative and administrative processes. The narrative is structured chronologically within an integrated Marxist framework of historical perspective, and is based on a wide range of primary sources.
