About this Item: Simon and Schuster, New York, USA. Paperback. Condition: New. First Edition. The Tears of the Rajas is a sweeping history of the British in India, seen through the experiences of a single Scottish family. For a century the lows of clatto survived mutiny, siege, debt and disease, everywhere from the heat of Madras to the Afghan snows. They lived through the most appalling atrocities and retaliated with some of their own. Each of their lives, remarkable in itself, contributes to the story of the whole fragile and imperiled, often shockingly oppressive and devious but now and then heroic and poignant enterprise. On the surface, John and Augusta Low and their relations may seem imperturbable, but in their letters and diaries they often reveal their loneliness and desperation and their doubts about what they are doing in India. The Lows are the family of the author's grandmother and a recurring theme of the book is his own discovery of them and of those parts of the history of the British in India which posterity has preferred to forget. The book brings to life not only the most dramatic incidents of their careers - the massacre at Vellore, the conquest of Java, the deposition of the boy-king of Oudh, the disasters in Afghanistan, the Reliefs of Lucknow and Chitral - but also their personal ordeals - the bankruptcies in Scotland and Calcutta, the plagues and fevers, the deaths of children and deaths in childbirth. And it brings to life to the unrepeatable strangeness of their lives - the camps and the palaces they lived in, the balls and the flirtations in the hill stations and the hot slow rides through the dust. An epic saga of love, war, intrigue and treachery, the tears of the Rajas is surely destined to become a classic of its kind. Printed Pages: 773. Size: 16 x 24 Cm. Seller Inventory # 037933

About this Item: Orient BlackSwan Pvt. Ltd, 2015. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. The Trouble with Marriage considers the legacies of legal reforms around marriage and gendered violence in India in the 1980s which were strongly influenced by demands of the women?s movement: lawyer-free Family Courts, the criminal prosecution of domestic violence, rape law reform, and the promotion of alternate dispute resolution as a mode of better gendered access. Looking backward to legislative debates, and forward to everyday life in legal sites of marital trouble, such as Family Court, police cells for women, and mediation organizations, it presents a portrait of contemporary marriage and of legal culture. New legal subjectivities and strategies emerge as men and women negotiate concerns with money, kinship and violence in formal and informal venues, using a range of potentially contradictory civil and criminal laws. Some laws become popular in ways not imagined as part of their feminist scope: Family Courts proffer reconciliation as optimal solution, rape law secures marriage by evacuating consent as a criterion; domestic violence claims help with better economic settlements while rendering violence invisible. Through compelling ethnographic vignettes and a re-evaluation of feminist theories of law, marriage, violence, property, and the state, Basu argues that despite reforms, legal process reproduces the profound structural vulnerabilities generated by marriage. Alternative dispute resolution, designed to empower women in a less adversarial legal environment, has created new subjectivities, but, paradoxically, also reinforces oppressive socioeconomic norms. This book would be of interest to those in Law and Society Studies, Gender / Women?s Studies, Anthropology, Sociology, and to those activists and NGOs who work on gender, marriage and violence.
