Passionate Modernity by Sanjay Srivastava
Book DescriptionCombining historical and ethnographic analysis, this book deals with the making of the heterosexual imagination from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present in the Indian context. This unique book uses methods from anthropology, cultural studies and history to explore the making of modern cultures of sexuality in India. It provides an analysis of the sexual and domestic politics of the period by focusing on the vast corpus of publications and journals on sexology from the 1920s to the 1940s, and links Indian activities with those in other parts of the world. The author analyzes material that has thus far been outside the purview of scholarly studies, namely, 'footpath pornography', magazines such as Sexology Mirror (in Hindi), women's magazines dealing explicitly with sex and sexuality.

Constructing Post-Colonial India, Paperback (October 1998)» View all books by Sanjay Srivastava
The Doon School, a famous boarding school for boys in India, inculcates in its students the notion that to be post-colonial is to be rational, secular and metropolitan. In this detailed study, the author digs deep to find the roots of the ideological construction of post-coloniality in India.
