Recasting Women

Essays in Colonial History


In this landmark collection on colonial history, Kumkum Sangari and Sudesh Vaid bring together some of India's leading historians and feminist theorist to examine the impact of patriarchy on women's daily lives during the colonial period, specifically in relation to caste and class.
