3 Re-searching Indian Women

Vijaya Ramaswamy (ed.)

Manohar, New Delhi, India, 2003, 81-7304-496-1 / 9788173044960, First Edition, Cloth, New, New, 14.5 Cms x 22.5 Cms 
While many of the recent publications under the genre of women`s studies have focussed on women in a generic sense, the present collection is centered around the theme of images and self-images of Indian women. It is hoped that these essays will provide feminists exploring fresh areas of research on women with methodological insights into how traditional as well as non-conventional sources could be used to deconstruct existing images of women and in doing so, re-present women in fresh and hitherto unperceived ways.

'[This book is] a gendered cultural and economic history of colonialism and of independent India in which women are both acted on and are agents in society and history.' --- The Indian Historical Review '[This book] is a significant contribution to the growing but still small literature on the history of gender relations in South Asia.' --Economic and Political Weekly 'A significant contribution to the field of gender studies.' -- Seminar 'A highly informative thesis that is at the same time highly readable.' --Hindustan Times 'With this book Prem Chowdhry has emerged as a leading feminist historian of modern India.' --Sociological Bulletin This book examines the position of women in rural Haryana in north India. Covering both colonial and post colonial periods, it explores issues such as participation of women in the processes of production and reproduction, their exclusion from the control of resources and decion making, the resistanc e of patriarchal society to a change in their legal position, their self assertion and agency against heavy odds as well as their complicity in the reconstruction of patriarchy. A new preface recounts the few positive changes that have happened recently along with the continuing gender-related discrimination and violence rampant in this part of the country. This book will be useful to scholars of sociology, gender studies, history, and the lay reader. Printed Pages: 490. 002272
