Book Info

The book is about the identity politics in a post-colonial society that motivated the Bengali Muslims to participate in Bangladesh’s independence movement. Its approach is a major departure from the traditional analysis which tends to suggest that nationalist movement is a non contradictory political movement. To the contrary, the book argues, like all other social movements, the nationalist movement responds to restructuring the power relation in a society. The book takes both historical and structural approaches to show the class and cultural dynamics of the nationalist movement in Bangladesh, by critiquing the mainstream literature on nationalism and applying it to the Bangladeshi context. From this perspective the fluidity of the political and cultural dynamics in colonial and post colonial Muslim Bengal seemed to play a crucial role in homogenizing political and cultural identity in Muslim Bengal.
