Overview

This study breaks fresh ground by way of discussing two important social controversies in nineteenth-century Bengal, namely, the Brahmo Marriage Bill and the Age of Consent Bill. The period under study covers the thirty years between the Brahmo Marriage Bill and the start of the anti-Partition agitation. This is one of the most fascinating yet under-researched periods in the history of modern Bengal. It was a period during which community identities were formulated and reformulated to the extent of considerably older, syncretic lifestyles.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Amiya P. Sen's detailed analysis of Hindu culture-builders in late-nineteenth-century Bengal is surely among the most important contributions to the historiography of the Bengal Renaissance in at least a generation."—American Historical Review
