Book Description
If the nation is an imagined community, so too is the family. Though both "nation" and family materially conditioned human lives in the past, only the former has had the benefit of historical scrutiny from scholars of modern South Asia. The latter the family has been generally taken fro granted. This interdisciplinary volume tries simultaneously to interrogates, and fill, the long silence in the history of the family in South Asia. Scholars of history, literature and social anthropology come together here to open up a diverse archive from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries. Their essays reveal the political ad ideological work involved in imagining the family, writing about it, and at the some time, living in it.
