Omnibus of North Bengal explores the historical dynamics covering a wide range of issue on society, polity, economy, movements and also art and architecture that had crystallized in the Northern part of Bengal, colloquially known as North Bengal at present. The book embodies twenty research articles. Peoples settlement patterns are generally conditioned by dictates of geography as well as of zonal linguistic groupings. Since the early period the archaeological remains at Mahasthangarh, Bangarh, Jagaddal Mahavihar, Jagajjivanpur Mahavihar, the ruins of Asuragarh have revealed horizontal extension of urban or semi urban settlement and justifiably have curved a niche in academic discourse. Simultaneous attention is needed to explore the historical process that has been going on and on through the ages in piedmont North Bengal. This region is a meeting ground of different Indo-Mongoloid groups and other ethnic people. The Tibeto-Burman speech speaking people are generally known as the Kiratas . The role played by the people inhabiting the foothills of the sub-Himalayan region bordered by Nepal, Tibet, Sikkim, Bhutan and others has been so long looked small. The Omnibus of North Bengal has tried to visualize the people and history of North- Bengal as a whole. (jacket). Buchnummer des Verkäufers 115871
