Combining 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, a ~footpath pornographya
(TM), magazines such as Sexology Mirror (in Hindi), womena (TM)s
magazines dealing explicitly with sex and sexuality.
