PART- I : The prelude — (1857-1917)

To trace the history of a movement that is European in historical origin and proletarian in character, in an Asian ‘peasant country’ like India, one has to start with an understanding of two inter-related processes : (a) the changing social structure and political milieu of India under British rule and (b) the evolution of the guiding ideology of this movement on the question of revolution in such countries. The first part of our Introduction section is, therefore, devoted to this purpose.
