Since the mid 1970s gender has been introduced as a fundamental category of social cultural and historical reality perception and study. In the recent past there has been a growing interest on the question of gender within historical research. Social history is becoming more intelligible through recent studies on women. Women are no longer invisible in history. In India also gender history is developing into a new area of research and today we have scholars with a much more sophisticated approach than even a decade ago. This monograph marks a welcome recognition of the importance of situating women's history within the broader perspective of social history and illustrates the wide variety of themes in women's history on which historians have been working over the last few decades. The essays in this monograph have been written with great insight and bear ample evidence of painstaking research. Though basically intended as a reference work for scholars who wish to conduct an indepth study on the aspects covered yet lay readers too will find some of the essays interesting.
