From Amazon: “The years immediately following the Bengal Famine of 1943 witnessed the consolidation of communal ideologies culminating in the riots of 1946 in Calcutta and the violence in Noakhali on 1946-47. This volume explores this period of Indian history and argues that the final phase of the anti-colonial struggle witnessed a clash of nationalism and communalism where class and solidarity against the colonial power was forgotten.”
