Agrarian Bengal by Sugata Bose

Book Description

As well as being an outstanding contribution to Indian economic and social history, this book draws important conclusions about peasant politics in general and about the effects of international economic fluctuations on primary producing countries. Dr Bose develops a general typology of systems of agrarian production in Bengal to show how these responded to different types of pressure from the world economy, and treats in detail the effects of the world Depression on Bengal. Separate chapters are devoted to the themes of agrarian conflict and religious strife in east Bengal, the agrarian dimension of mass nationalism in west Bengal and sharecroppers agitations in the frontier regions. The conclusion attempts a synthesis of the typology of agrarian social structure and the periodisation of peasant politics, placing this in the wider context of agrarian societies and protest in other parts of India and in South-east Asia.

His Majesty's Opponent by Sugata Bose His Majesty's Opponent, Paperback (November 2012)

This definitive biography of Subhas Chandra Bose, the revered and controversial Indian nationalist who struggled to liberate his country from British rule before and during World War II, moves beyond the legend to reveal the impassioned life and times of the private and public man.

Modern South Asia by Sugata Bose Modern South Asia, Hardback (January 2011)

Provides insight for those with an intellectual curiosity about South Asia. After sketching the pre-modern history of the subcontinent, this book focuses on the last three centuries. It offers an historical understanding of the politics, cultures, and economies that shape the lives of more than a fifth of humanity.

Cosmopolitan Thought Zones by Sugata Bose Cosmopolitan Thought Zones, Hardback (May 2010)

Examines forms of cosmopolitanism in the high period of South Asian anti-colonialism, 1890-1947. Essays argue that anti-colonial action stemmed not only from a teleological rush to realize the form of nation-states, but from the speculative aspiration to critique and transcend notions of universalism and the ultimate good brought by British rule.

On December 26, 2004, giant tsunami waves destroyed communities around the Indian Ocean, from Indonesia to Kenya. This work offers a reinterpretation of how culture developed and history was made at the height of the British raj.
