Riassunto: This book contains 10 revisionist essays on the British, tribals, the working class, the Bengal renaissance, literature, caste, Bengali politics and other topics. This book does not propagate any particular view of history, as the essays represent a melange of opinions, sometimes at variance with each other. It looks critically at the existing historical discourses with a view to stoke new debates.
About the Author: Sekhar Bandyopadhyay teaches South Asian History at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand.

BRAND NEW, Bengal: Rethinking History: Essays in Historiography, Sekhar Bandyopadhyay, Sekhar Bandyopadhyay, Published in association with International Centre for Bengal Studies Over the last twenty-five years significant epistemological shifts and methodological innovations have enriched the historiography of colonial Bengal. The essays in Bengal: Rethinking History critically examine some of those trends and indicate possibilities of future research. In the first section of this book, Lakshmi Subramanian discusses the debates concerning the early fortunes of the English East India Company, Sanjukta Das Gupta deals with the complex literature on peasant and tribal movements, Arjan de Haan looks at the debates with regard to the industrial working classes and Brian Hatcher traces the changing trends in the interpretation of Bengal Renaissance. The essay by Bob Pokrant, Peter Reeves and John McGuire on the historical significance of fish, fisheries and the social life of Bengal fishermen is an example of the new areas of research that are being opened up in recent years. In the second section on social identities and politics, Asim Roy provides a comprehensive study of the enormous volume of literature on the Bengal Muslims quest for identity, Sekhar Bandyopadhyay discusses the literature on caste system and construction of identities among lower caste Hindus and Samita Sen takes a critical glance at recent researches on the history of women. Nationalism has been one of the most explored areas of Bengal history. In this volume Sugata Bose critically examines the existing views on Bengal nationalism, while Joya Chatterji investigates the problems of interpreting the troubled politics of the 1940s. This book does not propagate any particular view of history, as the essays represent a melange of opinions, sometimes at variance with each other. It looks critically at the existing historical discourses with a view to stoke new debates. Codice libro della libreria B9788173044007
