Chapter Two covers the various political parties, with special attention to the Communist Part of India and the Hindu Mahasabha. The latter is also the subject of documentation research in a separate chapter entitled "Communalism." Chapters Three and Four are braodly concerned with peasant and the industrial working classes, the economic conditions and economic policies in 1946, caste movements, and linguistic regional movements.
