North West India in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries
The Editorial Board of the Church History Association of India takes great pleasure in presenting yet another book, the fourth, in the CHAI History of Christianity in India Series. Dr. Downs is widely regarded as an authority on the subject, the history of the Christian people of North East India.
One of the author?s main interests is social history: the impact of Christianity upon the peoples of North East India, with special emphasis on the relationship between Christianity and social change. He also seeks to demonstrate the unique interaction between socio-cultural plurality and the ecclesiastical and political context. True to the perspective laid down by the Editorial Board for this series, Dr. Downs places emphasis on the proposition that Christianity in India must be understood from the perspective of the Indian people rather than from that of mission agencies or foreign church.
