Federalism in the 1940s and 1950s

This study deals with a critical issue in the politics of contemporary Kenya." —Professor Shadrack W. Nasong'o, Rhodes College Read More..

The Male Empire Under the Female Gaze:

The British Raj and the Memsahib
Susmita Roye and Rajeshwar Mittapalli

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.
