Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Mother India, a polemical attack against Indian self-rule written by U.S. historian Katherine Mayo, was met with a storm of controversy when it was published in 1927. The controversy generated still reverberates and thus is still worth revisiting, some fifty years after Indian independence. In responding to Mayo s argument laid out in Mother India, the leaders of the national movement and the independent women s movement in India laid the foundations of an alliance that gave modern Indian nationalism its distinctive character.Mrinalini s Sinha s edition provides selections of this controversial book and commentary on the Mother India phenomenon. It also reprints a range of responses from Mayo s contemporaries. Sinha s edition works to locate the book and the controversy it incited in the context of U.S. domestic, British Imperial, and Indian nationalist politics. Unlike previous editions, Sinha s examines the history of cultural feminisms and the relations between women s movements in the United States, Britain, and India; the examination of these different movements reveals intriguing insights into the nature of the varied reactions to Mayo s book. The edition includes several formerly obscure contemporary responses to Mother India from representatives of the women s movement and of the anti-caste movement in India.Intended as a tool for students and teachers alike, this book will be an important text in the field of women s studies, cultural studies, political science, history, and religion, among others.Mrinalini Sinha is Associate Professor of History, Southern Illinois University. She is the author of Colonial Masculinity: The Manly Englishman and the Effeminate Bengali in the Late Nineteenth Century. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9780472097159

Synopsis: This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.
