Towards an Understanding of Communal Violence in Twentieth Century Bengal

Based on a historical study of communal riots in Bengal during 1905-47, the author attempts to understand why and how Hindu-Muslim communal violence occurred. The popular rather than the elite dimension of com- munalism is the focus of analysis. The author tries to explain the transition from community consciousness to communalism mainly in terms of the changing relationship between organised and unorganised politics.
