The Male Empire Under the Female Gaze:

The British Raj and the Memsahib
Susmita Roye and Rajeshwar Mittapalli
ISBN: 9781604978438

This book argues that although the memsahib’s female gaze has been spoken of, it has not been adequately emphasized and examined. Aiming at filling that gap by uncovering the world of British India as seen and shown by white women in colonial as well as postcolonial literatures, this compilation brings together scholarly essays on memsahibs’ literature and Raj writings, including men’s writings about memsahibs, spanning from before India’s independence to the post-Independence period.

Sexuality and the Literary Karyûkai
Cynthia Gralla
ISBN: 9781604977288

Political Essays on Women, Culture, and Nation
Anita Anantharam
ISBN: 9781604976717

This volume of translations of Mahadevi Varma’s feminist political essays is the first of its kind.

This book now helps fill the void with contributions from some of the highly regarded experts in the world of Hindi today. Read More..
