This book is an attempt to unearth a critical relationship between a crucial lever of colonialism in Asia and a frontier province full of tea gardens and vast fields of opium poppy. The book analyses in a comprehensive manner the pattern of opium consumption in colonial Assam within an imperialism-centred paradigm. The present volume is premised on explaining several queries that revolve around the emerging pattern of consumption of opium in colonial Assam and the creation of drug-dependency in a social context. It analyses in a comprehensive manner the competing forces of the empire which played a key role in the production and distribution of opium; national politics alongside international drug diplomacy and how these together shaped the discourse of opium in Assam; the wider implications of opium production and consumption in the agrarian economy and the narrative of the nationalist critique of intoxication. Kawal Deep Kour is an independent researcher on narcotics and drug policy. Dr. Kour is currently Member of Board at the International Society for the Study of Drug Policy, UK.
