Bangla (Bengali), an Eastern Indo-Aryan Language, is the national language of Bangladesh with 150 million speakers and the state language of Paschim Banga (West Bengal) in India with 90 million speakers. There are sizeable communities of Bengalis scattered all over the world. Altogether, the number of native speakers make Bangla the fifth or sixth largest language in the world. Like Hindi and other South Asian languages, Bangla has subject-object-verb word order, postpositions, causative and compound verbs. Unlike Hindi it has no gender. This volume presents a systematic overview of the language, from the sound system to parts of speech, syntactic categories to reduplicative features and some short text passages. The book is written in transliteration throughout to provide ease and convenience to non-Bengali as well as to Bengali linguists and students. In order to connect linguistic analysis with the living language, the book is furnished with plenty of real language examples, demonstrating the spirit, grace and wit of the Bangla language.

Contrary to most works on religious identity which treat the rural poor as an appendage of their urban co-religionists, this study concentrates on the evolution of mass awareness among the Muslims of Bengal, basing itself on an examination of the Bengali Muslim religious literature known as puthis. The book asks specific questions and develops the central thesis that for the Muslim masses, the reformist appeal of the Islamic revivalists proved a source of strength as well as of weakness: it roused them to action but made them susceptible to communal propaganda. In tracing the origins of separatism in a key area to its social and cultural roots, the work raises doubts about the validity of any simple explanation that emphasizes either the historical conflict between Hinduism and Islam, the doctrine of divide and rule, or the central role of constitutional initiatives. This book is essential reading for all interested in the question of religious identity: historians, social scientists and general readers alike.
