The Scandal of the State: Women, Law, and Citizenship in Postcolonial India by Rajeswari Sunder Rajan [in AsianWeek]

Scandal of the StateAn academic text, interspersed with narrative case studies, that explores the problematic status of women as recognized – or, more accurately, not recognized – by the Indian government. The picture is certainly far from pretty, much less bearable, but such a book as this bodes well for a much-needed improved future for women in India.
