Benjamin B. Cohen

Published by Manchester University Press

  • This is the first and only book of its kind on the topic (clubs in South Asia). It is essential reading to better understand Indo-British colonial life
  • Crosses disciplinary boundaries - it integrates archival research (from History) with social science theory (from Sociology and Political Science)
  • In new ways the book thematically explores aspects of associational life: law, space, employment, finance, race, and gender
  • Challenges stereotypes about clubs in South Asia and presents a new interpretation of their utility
  • The book uses never before examined archival sources
