From Google Books: "The Bomb in Bengal is a narrative history of the first phase of the revolutionary movement in Bengal. Many books and articles have been written about this period, some so uncritically laudatory that legend has taken the place of fact. Heehs provides a more accurate account than any found in previous narratives and also corrects mistakes made by academic historians. He succeeds in making his book as vivid and fast-moving as the events themselves. Heeh's approach is nationalist in focus, narrative in form, and chronological in presentation."
