Dear Colleagues:

A new book which investigates sexuality in India has just been published.
The book is entitled:

A Question of Silence? The Sexual Economies of Modern India/edited by Mary
E. John and Janaki Nair. 1998, viii, 412 p., US$23 (Free airmail delivery).

The blurb says: ""Has there been a 'conspiracy of silence' regarding
sexuality
in India, be it within social movements or as a focus of scholarship? A
question of silence? interrogates this assumption in order to thematise
a crucial field. Prefaced by a detailed introductory overview, the essays
use diverse perspectives to develop an understanding of the institutions,
practices and forms of representation of sexual relations and their
boundaries of legitimacy.

"From unravelling the Kamasutra (the text) to investigating Kamasutra
(the condom) the volume includes essays on how sexuality has been framed
by the law, within social movements, or has been the site for patrolled
caste, ethnic or gender identities. Other essays analyse cinematic,
televisual and literary representations of sexuality. Taken as a whole,
this book makes room for more wide-ranging approaches for tackling the
sexual economies of desire and violence among men and women in modern India.
[Mary John is Senior Fellow at the Centre for Women's Development Studies,
New Delhi. She also wrote Discrepant Dislocations: Feminism, theory and
Postcolonial Histories.

Janaki Nair is Fellow at the Madras Institute of Development Studies. She
also wrote Women and Law in Colonial India and Miners and Millhands: Work,
Culture and Politics in Princely Mysore."
