Manchester University Press, 1995 - Grande-Bretagne - Colonies - Asie - Administration - 191 pages

Mrinalini Sinha situates the analysis very specifically in the context of an imperial social formation, examining colonial masculinity not only in the context of social forces within India, but also as framed by and framing political, economic, and ideological shifts in Britain.
