New Viewpoints on Nineteenth Century Bengal

Chittrabrata Palit (Author)
Synopsis Nineteenth Century Bengal remains a fascinating study for Bengali identity and nostalgia. This book is an enlarged edition of a standard work on the subject. New essays on Rammohan, Derozio, Vidyasagar, Muslim students of the Hooghly Mohsin College and the Urban Poor of Calcutta have been added to the first edition. The book queries the substructure and the superstructure of the nineteenth century Bengali society and raises important debates. It is both a text and a commentary on the life and thought in Bengal-a quintessential reference for Bengal renaissance studies.
