Communalism in Bengal

From Famine To Noakhali, 1943-47

by Batabyal, Rakesh

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.
