From Plassey to Partition and After is that rare unbiased book on modern India Objective and comprehensive it is the one and only book you need to read to grasp the complex contours of modern Indian

narrative in your face like Bipan Chandra pushes his Marxist nationalistic narrative of India s freedom struggle in India s Struggle for Independence Rather Bandyopadhyay recognizes that freedom meant different things for different socio economic groups and furnishes a well researched summary of various historiographical strands He also incorporates recent academic work on economic history and explains modern political developments in the context of material conditions marking an illuminating shift from the usual personality ideology centric approach to historical events For instance he writes that Pakistan was presented as a peasant utopia to the peasants of East Bengal which would liberate the Muslim peasantry from the hands of Hindu zamindars and moneylenders thus representing a break from existing agrarian relations He also writes about the balancing act Congress had to perform between indigenous capitalists and the working class He writes that working class support for the
