Book seeks to analyse the socio-cultural milieu of colonial and post-colonial phases of Indian History with a particular emphasis on the history of eastern India. Though based on the records of archival importance, it highlights the deprivation, discrimination and dehumanization of the oppressed. This work marks a sharp departure from the conventional approaches to the study of evils like kulinism, devadasi, prostitution, polygomy, the sati etc. for it focuses on the vicious nexus between the feudal and the priestly classes. It aims at discussing how illiteracy has been allowed to perpetuate to the advantage of the privileged sections of the society. It also dwells upon how the 'renaissance' of the nineteenth century followed by the nationalist movement failed to ameliorate the suffering and miseries of the submerged sections of the society.Printed Pages: 252.
