This book traces the changing, long-term history of the vast Brahmaputra valley region. Examining the political and economic order of Buddhist, Vaisnava, Saiva, Tantric, and Sufis in the northeast, this is a story of how a modern Indian nation forgot its cosmopolitan past and gave itself a new history by forgetting the large numbers of societies centred on women.
