GUWAHATI, May 13 � The faculty members, students, research scholars and employees of the Department of History, Dibrugarh University, condoled the sad demise of Professor Amalendu Guha, noted scholar and historian of Assam, a press release stated.

Recollecting the contributions of Prof Guha in the field of historical research and social studies, Prof Jahnabi Gogoi Nath, Head of the Department of History, mentioned that Prof Guha was the main force behind advancement of the Marxist school or historical studies in Assam. In essence Prof Guha has been considered the father figure of left historical studies in Assam.

Prof D Nath in his condolence speech reflected on Amalendu Guha�s standing as a reputed historian of international stature whose works find reference even in the writings of such philosopher-cum-historian as Marc Bloch and Fernand Braudel. His study of the Mayamara Vaishnavism and the Moamariya Rebellion, and the Ahom and the rice economy of Assam are treated as path-breaking in the field of historical research in Assam.
