2 Tanika Sarkar
Rebels, Wives, Saints: Designing Selves and Nations in Colonial Times
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8178242478 / 9788178242477; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Tanika Sarkarís writings on women, religion, and nationhood in the context of colonial Bengal have been pathbreaking. In this new book of connected essays, she gives a new direction to the same themes, this time by focusing on some of the key historical texts within which these identities were given shape. The colonial universe outlined in this book centres around woman as both defiled and deified (woman as widow, woman as goddess); the nation as woman-goddess within a country comprising plural traditions; male reformers battling Hindu conservatives; a Hindu novelist idealizing nationalism as the demolition of Muslim symbols; and male-dominant social norms threatening principles of softness and femininity. While this is at one level a book of discrete essays, it is simultaneously a book about the structure of the early colonial universe in India, a world of linked coherences and incoherences, of arguments and oppositions to those arguments. This book will consolidate Tanika Sarkarís reputation as one of Indiaís foremost historians on women, power, and culture in colonial times. Printed Pages: 356. 031564

3 Sumit Sarkar & Tanika Sarkar
Women and Social Reform in Modern India, 2 Vols
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 817824327X / 9788178243276; Softcover; New; 
The subject of social reforms has routinely formed a part of Indian history texts. The word 'reforms' conjures up the names of a few great individuals: always Hindu, always upper-caste and educated, always from cities, and always--apart from one or two memorable exceptions--men. These are the icons around whom the story of social change is written. The editors of the present work argue the need to understand the history of social reforms from a much wider array of perspectives: for example, the connections between specific social abuses on the one hand, and, on the other, systems or traditions of gender practices across times, classes, castes, and regions. For instance, when we look at widow immolation or widow remarriage practices, we need to look also at the larger domain of gender relations which sanctified immolation or which outlawed widow remarriage. What arguments were used? What aspects of these practices did the reformers ignore? How did the orthodox practitioners defend such traditions? There are also, say Sumit and Tanika Sarkar, other curious omissions in the existing literature: 'Most reforms passed through the grid of state legislation. Yet, there is little engagement even with the law-making machinery ... and far less with the judicial courts that enforced the laws and dealt with disputes around the new laws.' Such omissions are addressed, and many interesting questions raised and discussed, in this impressive collection of writings.Printed Pages: 870. 101882
