This book is about the Communist-inspired cultural activism in Bengal that had strong national and international links, and responded to the critical social and political climate of the late colonial and early- Independence years. One of the main objectives of this activism was to give political direction to the middle-class and help them reach out to the labouring 'other'. The ultimate aim was to establish a cultural counter-hegemony in society by preparing people for a big revolution.

Dr Anuradha Roy has taught at different universities of West Bengal and in 2007, joined Jadavpur University as Professor of History.  Her works focus on the intellectual and cultural history of Bengal. She specializes in the life of the Bengali bhadralok (middle-class literati) and the bhadramahila (the women of the bhadralok family).
