The volume also contains Chatterjee’s provocative and theoretically innovative essays analysing the phenomenon of democracy in a post-colonial country like India. There are also examples of his early engagement with agrarian politics, and his life-long participation in the project of Subaltern Studies. A special feature of this book is the sampling it provides of Partha Chatterjee’s best short journalistic pieces, of humorous and stylistically brilliant book reviews, and the first translations into English of some of his Bengali essays. This is the most comprehensive single volume encompassing the full range of the work of one of India’s most original social scientists.Printed Pages: 376.
