Situating Indo-Burma frontier within the larger context of British imperial policy -- Frontier policy : problem of the Arakan frontier -- Manipur frontier : Kamhau-Sukte and Meitei relations -- Colonial penetration : explorations, expeditions and resistance -- Colonial policy backfired : disarmament and resistance -- Administrative developments : "indirect rule" and the making of colonial "agents" -- The Chin Hills district : towards consolidation
"This book examines the British colonial expansion in the so-called 'unadministered' hill tracts of the Indo-Burma frontier and the change of colonial policy from non-intervention to intervention. The book begins with the end of the First Anglo-Burmese War (1824-26), which resulted in the British annexation of the North-Eastern Frontier of Bengal and extension of its sway over Arakan and Manipur frontiers, and closes with the separation of Burma from India in 1937. The volume documents the resistance of the indigenous hill peoples to colonial penetration; administrative policies such as disarmament; subjugation of the local chiefs under a colonial legal framework and its impact; standardization of 'Chin' as an ethnic category for the fragmented tribes and sub-tribes; and the creation and consolidation of the Chin Hills District as a political entity to provide an extensive account of British relations with the indigenous Chin/Zo community from 1824 to 1935. By situating these within the larger context of British imperial policy, the book makes a critical analysis of the British approach towards the Indo-Burma frontier. With its coverage of key archival sources and literature, this book will interest scholars and researchers in modern Indian history, military history, colonial history, British history, South Asian history, and Southeast Asian history"-- Provided by publisher
