About the Book :

This book critically analyses the various historical events which led to Bengal political, cultural and religious developments over the centuries. Going deep into the renaissance that first dawned in Bengal, it discusses in detail its arts and crafts, literature, trade and industry, religious harmony and adventurous spirit. Further highlighting the nationalist activities of Bengal, the book also takes note of contributions made by Bengali intellectuals in the fields of art, literature, education, political awareness and social reforms.
