Studies in Imperialism MUP

  • Situates women at the centre of the practices and policies of British imperialism
  • Uses a wide and rich range of sources to analyse women's involvement on both an ideological and a pragmatic level
  • Although focusing on the experiences of British women, the book considers the intertwined histories of men and women, and of Indians and Europeans
  • Focuses on the 'official' community in India, whose personal and professional fortunes were linked inextricably to the fate of the empire
