3 A Narrative of Communal Politics: Uttar Pradesh 1937-39

Salil Misra

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2001, 0-7619-9505-6 / 9780761995050, First Edition, Cloth, New, New, 5.5" x 8.5" 
The promulgation of the Government of India Act of 1935 not only reinforced the phenomenon of separate electorates on the basis of religion but led to a dramatic change in the nature of communalism in the Indian subcontinent. This is the story of how the different political forces in Uttar Pradesh—the Congress, the Muslim League, the landlords and the Hindu Mahasabha—responded to the new context, and how they strove to establish control over the available political space. This seminal work is a significant departure from other studies of the period, in that it addresses communalism as an independent force, acutely conscious of its interests and very keen on preserving itself, and not allied to either the Congress or the British.
