"In the last twenty-five years significant epistemological shifts and methodological innovations have enriched the historiography of colonial Bengal. The essays in this collection by noted scholars in the field critically examine some of these trends.

Section two focusing on social identities and politics, the Bengali Muslims’ quest for identity: :literature on caste system and construction of identities among lower caste Hindus while Samita Sen, in her essay, critically examines recent researches on the history of women, existing views on nationalism in Bengal the problems of interpreting the troubled politics of the 1940s, etc
This book does not propagate any particular view of history but looks critically at the existing historical discourses with a view to stoke new debates.
