Robert Reid?s A History of Frontier Areas Bordering on Assam is a fascinating piece of colonial writing. It is a window into the colonial mind with its notions of people and space that comprise Northeast India. Reid?s account amply demonstrates that for the colonial system a frontier was a set of socio spatial relations and not mere drawing and administration of international boundaries. Reid?s work is a wealth of insight into these debates. These debates have significant contemporary relevance. They highlight the relation between thought and policy making with regard to frontier processes and provide a context to study social and political transition from colonial to post-colonial Northeast India.The book will be useful to researchers, administrators and policy makers interested in socio-political development of Northeast India and frontier studies in general.
