The Bolshevik Revolution introduced Marxism to Bengali intellectuals who lost an opportunity to build it up theoretically. The book critically examines their writings on Marxism, referring to wide-ranging sources in Bengali, not hitherto available in other books on Marxism. The Bengali Marxists wrote on Marxian theory and were greatly excited by Marxian aesthetic debates from the 1930s, privileging art and literature over political struggles, which perhaps explain its failure as a practice.
