Om Sovereignty and Social Reform in India
This book offers an important reinterpretation of major themes of sovereignty, authority and social reform in colonial South Asian history. Focusing on the British prohibition of sati in 1829, the author shows how the debates that preceded this legislation have effectively set the terms of post-colonial debates about sati, as well as more generally defining the parameters of British involvement in Indian social and religious issues.
