This article advances an understanding of the social and political basis of dalit massacres in Bihar by putting atrocities like Laxmanpur Bathe, Bathani Tola and others in the historical context of caste and class struggles as well as the anti-feudal struggle in Bihar. The role of the state in colluding with feudal and upper caste interests is also emphasised.
