Social and Economic Compulsions behind Communalism-A Case Study

Communalism A Case Study Ratna Dutta Based on fieldwork in a small town in the Deccan, this paper examines the social and economic compulsions behind communalism. It is part of a larger comparative study of communalism and economic and political development in Asia.
