ABOUT THE BOOK
The present volume contains the description about the ethnical Frontier of lower Bengal with the ancient principalities of Beerbhoom and Bishenpore. These State Papers are based on the popularity and results of British rule in India. They furnish a reasonable opportunity for a work which portrays the state of the country. The volume is a series of essays on the life of the peasant cultivator in Bengal after the English ascendancy: his troubles over the land, the currency, the courts, the village and general governments, the religious customs, and other institutions, all bearing directly on his prosperity. A valuable chapter is on the rebellion of the Santal tribes and its causes.In this volume, one of the most admirable civilians that England ever sent to India displays his finest qualities, not alone his immense scholarship and his literary charm, but his practical ability, his broad humanity and interest in the “dim common populations sunk in labor and pain”.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Sir William Wilson Hunter was a member of the Indian Civil Service, a great statistician and compiler, an imperial historian, and a man of letters with a wide range of interests in race, religion, philology, diplomacy and journalism. Hunter was born at Glasgow on 15 July 1840.He began his academic life in 1854 at‘the Quaker Seminary’ at Queens wood, Hampshire. After a profitable year at this school, he joined the Glasgow Academy. He studied various subjects, such as Chemistry, Logic and Mathematics in the University of Glasgow and obtained the degree of Bachelor of Arts in April 1860. Hunter was a prolific writer on a variety of subjects. Anglo-Indian journalism afforded him a noble area to augment his income. His deputation for compiling a history of Birbhum district in March 1866 is considered to be a turning point in his literary career. This helped him to tap unexplored sources, which gave a new interpretation to Indian history.
