Abstract The Bengali people live in the Bengal region of India in northeastern South Asia. This region is divided politically between the nation of Bangladesh and the Indian state of West Bengal. The file contains 30 documents; 19 focus on Hindu Bengalis in West Bengal and the rest on the Muslim Bengalis in Bangladesh. Most of the research is based on village studies; the major foci are social structure, gender, religion, and land tenure.
