Contentious Traditions

Contentious Traditions The Debate on Sati in Colonial India Lata Mani

Analyzes the debate on sati, or widow burning, in colonial India. This book argues that the women who were burned were marginal to the debate and that the controversy was over definitions of Hindu tradition, the place of ritual in religious worship, the civilizing missions of colonialism and evangelism, and the proper role of the colonial state.
