Naming A People: British Frontier Management in Eastern Bengal & The Ethnic Categories of The Kuki-Chin 1760-1860

There are four countries where one can find British records regarding the KukiChin people: Burma, India, Bangladesh and Britain. The documents used in this thesis are mainly from the Oriental and India Office Collections (OIOC) in the British Library, London and the National Archives of India in New Delhi.
I quote a document by the name of the author (sender), receiver, date of composition, and the title given in the letter, if applicable, rather than by the call numbers alone. This is the way in which official letters were written and quoted by the administrators during the colonial period and therefore the most definite way to identify a document even when copies of the same document appear in different places. For the same reason, I have used paragraph numbers, or dates in the case of diaries, rather than the page numbers when pointing to specific parts within documents. The details of the archives or published books in which the documents are found are included in bracket
