Review:

"The overall conception behind this book is so rich and Jayawardena's insight...is so valid that the juxtaposition of these women's lives...makes fascinating reading."
-"American Historical Review, 4/97
..."The White Women's Other Burden proposes [new materials and new approaches] so clearly and unambiguously... This substantive, fully realized work calls for our admiration with its lucid narrative style, accessible across disciplines without jargon, presenting rarely told stories that individualize yet do not shirk generalization."
- "American Anthropology
