Politics and the Bengal Legislative Council 1912-1926

Broomfield, John Hindle


In nineteenth-century Bengal a small section of Hindu society, educated, of high-caste, and with an economy based upon landed rents and professional employment, evolved from its contact with the British a distinctive culture. This gave its members a sense of community and set them apart from the mass of Bengalis. They called themselves bhadralok: 'the respectable people'.
