Description

This is an ambitious study of gender and politics in India, and will be of interest to scholars of women's studies, globalization, postcolonialism, geography, media studies, and cultural studies, as well as India more generally.

Reviews

"Rupal Oza conceptualizes the “contentious debates over India’s identity” in the 1990s through an examination of three distinct but related phenomena: neoliberal policies, the rise of the Hindu Right, and the consolidation of the middle classes…point[s] to how gender, nationalism, and community identities are integrally related in both colonial and postcolonial times…contribute[s] to existing feminist and postcolonial debates in a rich and provocative manner." -- Jinee Lokaneeta, Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society, Summer 2008
