The Indian Tichborne caseProf. Partha chatterjee's research oriented book is based on the startling Bhawal case, which captivated undivided Bengal for nearly two decades in the 1930s and 1940s' The book deals extensively with the legal case concerning the possible identity of the second Kumar of Bhawal, who presumably died in Darjeeling in 1909, due to an attack of biliary colic, but reappeared as a sannyasi in Dhaka after a long hiatus of eleven years.

The Prince and the SannyasiExcellent read-a book that goes beyond the mere facts of what was easily the most celebrated case of its time and tries to explore a possible link to the changing socio economic and political landscape of India in the manner in which things turned out the way they did.The author's erudition is beyond doubt and makes this a treatise of Historical Sociology if one may use the phrase which elevates this book to a level far higher than what the rather innocous title suggests

A great bookPartha C has written a magnum opus of sorts. The titillating lifestyle of a young man from a wealthy Zamindar family is brought forth with astounding lucidity, so much so, that you will feel you are living the era the book is based on.
