Description

About the Book

The Partition of Bengal in 1905 and its annulment in 1911-12 are landmarks in the history of India's struggle for freedom. The partition led the people of Bengal to protest against the arbitrary and motivated decision. The protest went through three phases: meetings and memorials, constitutional boycott, and terrorism. Bengali sentiments were sought to be placated by the eventual revocation of British India was moved to Delhi from Calcutta to check the furore of Bengal militancy.

This volume brings together a selection of texts, including the relevant government resolutions and proclamations; memorials and resolutions adopted at public protest meetings; historic lectures and addresses by Lord Curzon, Sir Charles Tegart, Abdur Rasul, Surendranath Banerjea, Rabindranath Tagore, Bepin Chandra Pal, Krishnakumar Mitra; essays, comments and editorials in newspapers of the period - and in The Bengalee, Bande Mataram and Yugantar, three major contemporary organs of protest. It offers readers a direct feel of the pulse of the times; and allows social scientists, historians and scholars to study closely the beginnings of the communal divide that led to the second Partition of 1947.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
