Hunter, the then Director General of Statistics to the Govt. of India published in 1876 is the second book containing information regarding the Chakmas. Though most of the description regarding history, society, religion and customs of the Chakmas in this book were quoted from The Chittagong Hill Tracts and Dwellers Therein by T. H. Lewin, it contains a detailed picture of CHTs from the economic perspective. It also traces the changing mood of social and administrative set-ups due to squabble between Kalindi Ranee and other Ranees on the claim of the throne, increasing influences of the British authorities, encouragement of settlement of Tripuris and Gorkhas by the Britishers to prevent Lushai raids, establishment of Schools at Rangamati, Maniksury and Chandraghona, discouraging jum cultivation by forming Reserved Forests and Khas Mahal and encouraging plough cultivation to increase tax collection. This book is also the oldest record describing the border between the CHTs and the Lushai Hills.
