This interdisciplinary study in socio-political and intellectual history examines the tension between religious and secular perceptions among the intelligentsia in Bengal in matters pertaining to their social, cultural, and political lives. It explores the wide impact of their local Indian, trans-Indian, colonial, and post-colonial experiences and predicts a continued struggle between religious and secular forces to determine the nature of the state in the foreseeable future.
