Victims Or Criminals

This fascinating exploration of female victims and criminals in colonial India lies at the intersection of several fields: colonial history, women's studies, Indian studies, political economy, and the history of crime and punishment. Using an interdisciplinary approach, Dr. Singh argues that women's crime in India was largely induced by colonial intervention, oppression, and exploitation and that the punishment for such crimes was used as a means of social control and repression. Moreover, "deviant behavior", "immorality", and "criminals" - as these terms were defined by the state alone - were most often applied to the lower castes of women, a practice that not only points to conspicuous gender inequality and classism, but also to the very thin line between victim and criminal, between abuse/violation of women and supposed judicial sanctioning for their "crimes". This analysis of women and criminality under colonial rule sheds light on similar transformations currently taking place in many Third World countries as it simultaneously contributes to the discussion of the "battered women syndrome" in the United States.

Domesticity in Colonial India offers a trenchant analysis of the impact of imperialism on the personal, familial, and daily structures of colonized people's lives. Exploring the 'intimacies of empire,' Judith E. Walsh traces changing Indian gender relations and the social reconstructions of the late nineteenth century. For urban middle-class Indians of this time, the Hindu woman and her domestic world were at the center of a debate over colonial modernity and indigenous home and family life. The practices of family, home, and daily life that resulted would define the Hindu woman of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and the domestic worlds in which she was embedded. With its rich and compelling use of primary sources, this book will be invaluable not only to scholars and students of South Asian history, but also to a general audience interested in women's history and colonialism. The accompanying website includes a full array of the authorOs translations of never-before-studied Bengali-language domestic manuals.

Co-published by Routledge and Edition Synapse, this new title makes key archival source material readily available to scholars, researchers, and students of Indian imperial history. The collection will be particularly welcomed by those working in women's and gender studies, and in women's history, but also by those active in allied and related fields. Selected and introduced by an expert editor, the gathered materials are reproduced in facsimile, giving users a strong sense of immediacy to the texts and permitting citation to the original pagination. Women in Colonial India is a veritable treasure-trove; it brings together key colonial documents and other materials which are currently widely dispersed or very difficult for scholars, researchers, and students across the globe to locate and use. In five volumes, the collection draws on a wide variety of sources, including periodicals, memoirs, parliamentary, and administrative reports. It covers crucial gendered concerns and topics, such as 'the woman question'; female infanticide; widow-burning; education; health; and marriage. Each volume is supplemented by a substantial introduction, newly written by the learned editor, which contextualizes the collected works, and this vital reference and research resource also includes a detailed appendix providing data on the provenance of the gathered works.
