Nivedita Menon, Lecturer, Department of Political Science, Lady Shri Ram College, New Delhi.Review:
`Each segment has an excellent overview from Menon that succinctly identifies the central arguments and controversies in each area of politics.' Nalini Lyer, Contemp. South Asia (2000) 9(3).
Each of these essays is rigorous in its scholarship and adds another dimension to the general discussion of gender and politics in India./ What is commendable about this volume is its insistence on giving voice to a variety of views and disciplines on gender issues. Nalini Lyer, Contemp. South Asia (2000) 9(3).
Ruth Vanita's essay, the final one in this volume, critiques the overwhelming emphasis on heterosexual paradigms in the Indian feminist agenda. Her essay provides a wonderful counterpoint to the collection itsef. Contemp. South Asia (2000) 9(3).
This volume is invaluable to anyone who is working on gender studies in the South Asian context. It is particularly useful for students beginning their work on South Asian women's issues. Contemp. South Asia (2000) 9(3).
