Summary 'An Endangered History' is an account of the little-studied region of the Chittagong Hill Tracts of British-governed Bengal, from the late 18th to the mid-20th centuries. The Chittagong Hill Tracts lie on the crossroads of India, east Bengal (now Bangladesh) and Burma (contemporary Myanmar). An area of lush rivers and fertile valleys, it has historically been celebrated for its haunting natural beauty and religious heterodoxy from the chronicles of Mughal governors to the ethnohistories of British colonial administrators. The region is composed of several indigenous or 'tribal' communities, whose transcultural histories defied colonial and later postcolonial taxonomies of identity and difference.
