It analyzes why--from the second half of the nineteenth century--the Hindu bhadralok in Bengal developed a specific rhetoric of culture that has continued to inform their identity to the present day.Scholars specifically interested in the history of colonial Bengal will find this book very relevant. Historians of colonial India researching other aspects of colonial class formation as well as the lay reader will find this book of much use.
