"This is a book about literature and radical politics in the Indian subcontinent during the decades immediately preceeding and following the attainment of formal independence in 1947... The consequences for literary and cultural production were decisive. The years from 1936 to 1954 were the heyday of a hugely influential radical cultural movement that spanned several regions and languages across India (as well as the region that becam Pakistan). Represented by, though not restricted to, the formation of the All-India Progressive Writers' Association (PWA) in 1936 (and its partner organization, the Indian People's Theatre Association IPTA, which were established in 1942), this movement was closely linked to the debates over decolonisation and the nature of post-colonial nation state."--Introduction.
