Historians and historiography of Northeast India, a publication on the occasion of birth centenary of the Doyen among historians of Northeast India Professor H.K. Barpujari covers the life and works of twenty seven historians who made significant contributions in history writing but have gone to the great beyond. The historians included in the volume were not necessarily professional historians or those educated and trained in the discipline of history. Most of them belonged to other disciplines and other professions but they are historians by their outstanding contributions in historiography of Northeast India and their contributions are remembered by those who care for intellectual heritage of the region. The essays included in the volume are contributed by scholars who are known for their research works. Each essay on a particular historian is formatted to cover at least three aspects namely biographical sketch contributions to history and a historiographic assessment of the works involving methodology quality of data literary style and objectivity in analysis and presentation. There were many more historians of the region in yester years not directly covered in the volume because of limitations of space and time but their major contributions have also been highlighted between the essays in endnotes and editorial addendums. A compendium of a sort on the state of art in historiography of Northeast India, the book is likely to be entertained by all lovers of history.
