About the Book:

The aim of the book in three volumes is to set forth before the reader a picture of glorious Kamarupa, with an account of its people, their social life and the history of their civilisation. Bounded on the North by the Himalayas and on the South by Mandachala generally known as the Garo Hills, and protected in the East and West by the Dikkaru-Vasini and the sacred Karatoya respectively, this beautiful strip of land seems situated, as it were, in the very lap of Nature, well secured against all outside influence. Naturally, therefore, curiosity is vigorously excited to enquire and learn how the first touch of civilization was carried into this eastern most part of India, cut off from the rest of the world by natural barriers. These are questions that profoundly interest not only the historian or archaeologist, but all those who would study nationalism and try to understand the very interesting history of the rise and fall of a nation, and who are eager to know how the Aryans and Dravidians and Mongolians came to be blended together into one people and would also like to have a peep into their social life.<-p>

The Social history of Kamarupa in the later times forms the subject matter of the second volume. In the book it has been described how the Baro-Bhuiyas rose to eminence in Central and Western Kamarupa on the fall of the Bhaskara Dynasty.<-p>

After the publication of the sec-end volume complaints from some of the Kamarupa Kayastha Samaj came to the author that he has left out of some of the important ancient Kayastha families Social History of the These could not be complete without the record of those families. Thus, the third volume narrates the story of the influence of the kings of Kamarupa over eople whom they conquered.<-p>
