An Endangered History: Indigeneity, Religion, and Politics on the Borders of India, Burma, and Bangladesh
This book investigates how British administrators from the eighteenth to mid-twentieth centuries used European systems of knowledge, such as botany, natural history, gender, enumerative statistics, and anthropology, to construct the indigenous communities of the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) and their landscapes. In the process, they connected the region to a dynamic, global map, and classified its peoples through the reifying language of religion, linguistics, race, and nation.
